ng in September, 1942," Headmaster Edward Eames wrote at the 
World War II, "we set aside each morning a twenty-minute work period durim 
boys cleaned their dormitory rooms, bathrooms, classrooms, library, etc. We also aske 
each boy to spend additional time each week cutting grass, raking leaves, shoveling snow, moving chairs, 
answering the telephone, working on the athletic fields, etc. We have turned to the boys for assistance 
partly because it has become impossible to secure sufficient help in any other way. The war has created 
a serious labor shortage in the vicinity of the school as it has everywhere else in the country. Yet there 
ler reason for taking this step which is fully as important. I believed that it is wholesome and 
th while for a bov to do as much of his own work as possible."

s message 

Good schools are organic entities in constant states of evolution. Change is 
always the order of things. Yet, we also know that change can be approached with 
fear, anxiety and loathing, or embraced for its new possibilities and opportunities. 
This year is the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark pioneering journey across 
the North American continent. The men and women of this venture are classic 
examples of folks who confronted change and new circumstances on a daily basis. 
Stephen Ambrose, in his biography, Undaunted Courage, writes of Meriwether 
Lewis, the leader of this endeavor: "He was entering a heart of darkness. Deserts, 
mountains, great cataracts, Indian tribes - he could not imagine them, because no 
other American had seen them. But, far from causing apprehension or depression, 

the prospect brought out his fullest talents He was exactly what Jefferson 

wanted him to be, optimistic, prudent, alert to all that was new about him. Every nerve ending was sensitive to the slightly 
change. He had an enduring sense of wonder at the marvels of nature that made him the nearly perfect man to be the 
first to describe the glories of the American West." 

The Corps of Discovery that Lewis and William Clark led did not discover anything new; everything they reported 
had been in plain sight for Native American tribes for generations. Yet the members of the Lewis and Clark expedition 
saw and chronicled things in a new light and with a fresh perspective. Our enduring mission at Governor Dummer 
Academy is similar. We hope to open students, teachers and parents to new experiences, fresh levels of knowing, height- 
ened moral imagination and novel ways to view their world. In short, to be receptive to change. Exposure to literature, 
the performing and visual arts, conversation, athletic competition, and service projects are all steps in this process. 

Last year, our seniors and faculty embraced the new "Capstone" program and made this service learning initiative a 
positive and valuable experience. The Class of 2005 will continue this new tradition. They will attend a series of work- 
shops that focus on the crisis in affordable housing in Massachusetts and then volunteer as a class at Habitat for Humanity 
sites during the week prior to Commencement. 

We have significantly revamped our Humanities Program. Beginning this fall, each GDA class will take two off-cam- 
pus trips per year, one to a Boston area museum (Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Peabody Essex and Fogg 
& Sackler) and the other to a live performance venue (American Repertory Theatre, North Shore Music Theatre, 
Huntington Theatre, and the Wang Theatre). Each trip will have a curricular connection to that particular class. To fur- 
ther augment this exposure to the arts, we have also scheduled a wide assortment of visiting artists, poets and musicians 
to perform on campus. 

Our annual "Without Walls" program, co-sponsored this fall by the History and Art Departments, focused on the 
issues in the recent presidential campaign and election. GDA students simulated a presidential election campaign com- 
plete with political caucuses, fundraising, nominating conventions and mock debates. This culminated with campus- wide 
balloting on Election Day. 

A new required speech class has been introduced into the curriculum for our sophomores, because the ability to 
speak comfortably and confidently in public is an important life skill. 

This year, the Dean's Office and our dorm parents created a new curriculum to further our goal of creating co-cur- 
ricular and residential life programs that promote and support the moral, ethical, athletic and artistic development of our 
students. All freshman day students will be affiliated with a dormitory to make their transition to community life easier. 
Throughout the year, boarding and day students will attend a series of age and gender appropriate programs that will 
address such topics as personal decision making; drugs, alcohol and tobacco; community living (bullying/harassment); 
nutrition and sleep habits; conflict resolution; and transitions. 

The oldest independent boarding school in the nation remains a vibrant and exciting place, keeping pace with the 
times while honoring the past. As always, I encourage you to visit us in Bytield and see how our community continues 
to evolve and prosper.

Developing the 
Development Office 

The GDA Development Office recently brought two new 
members on board. Martha Delay, Director of Annual Giving, 
started in January 2004 and Kevin Driscoll, Director of Alumni 
Relations, arrived in the office over the summer months. 

Martha joins the Development Team with experience on both 
the university and medical non-profit levels, most recently working 
in the Boston College Development Office. She is a graduate of 
Holy Cross College and lives on campus with her husband, history 
instructor Michael Delay. Martha and Michael are expecting their 
first child in January 2005. 

Kevin comes to the office with 10 years of boarding school 
experience, working at Phillips Academy Andover as Director of 
Student Activities and Coordinator of Orientation Programs and at 
The Dublin School as Dean of Students. Kevin, his wife KeDy, a 
guidance counselor at North Andover High School, and their four- 
year-old daughter Mackenzie live in Haverhill. 

GDA Athletic Hall of Fame 

Following the first and very successful induction ceremony and dinner in the fall of 2003, the Alumni Council and the Athletic Hall of 
Fame Committee did not rest upon its laurels. The committee, headed up by Marc Tucker '68, moved forward to insure that this event would 
be the first of many to come. Splitting the proceeds with the Middlesex Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Basketball Commission, the group 
launched what it hopes will be a new tradition on campus in the spring of 2004: The Athletic Hall of Fame Basketball Tournament. The 
spring event raised over $1500 in support of the AHOF and looks to double this amount at the next tournament in the spring of 2005! 
Congratulations and thanks go out to Marc and to Franklin Huntress '52 for their commitment and stewardship of this event. If you are 
interested in participating in future AHOF events, or serving on the AHOF Committee, please contact Kevin Driscoll, Director of Alumni 
Relations, at for more information. 

The Athletic Hall of Fame gives GDA the opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of those who excelled in ath- 
letics while attending GDA and also those who gave their time and effort to GDA athletics programs. Our second induction ceremony is planned for 
fall of 2005. Please send us your nominations. (See form on page 11)

Short Takes 

Science Teacher 
Edits National 

Steve Metz, who has taught at GDA 
since 1978, has been appointed Editor of 
The Science Teacher, a publication of the 
National Science Teachers Association. 
His three-year appointment began in June 2004, and his first issue was pub- 
lished in July. 

Metz was appointed after a national search by the publisher, NSTA, and 
an interview at their headquarters in Washington, DC. "I was interested in 
taking on new challenges, as I have been throughout my teaching career," 
he explains. "The Wright Science 2000 project allowed me to stay at the 
front of science education and educational reform. The editorship ofTST is 
a logical next step for me." 

The GDA teacher, who served as Chair of the Science Department 
from 1989 to 2002, believes the magazine serves an important role in sci- 
ence education. "Nine times a year TST publishes cutting edge science 
teaching activities and strategies," he says. "As the leading science education 
journal in the world, it disseminates news, ideas and best teaching practices 
to a wide audience of public and private school science teachers, libraries 
and science museums." 

His personal goals as editor are to continue the good work the journal 
does. "As the journal of the National Science Teachers Association, The 
Science Teacher journal (TST) reaches over 50,000 readers. I want the journal 
to publish the latest ideas and activities that can find immediate application 
in science classes across the country. More locally, there is a great advantage 
for GDA in this, as my work as editor of TST will allow me to share the 
best practices and teaching standards with my teaching colleagues." 

GDA Class in MIT Video 

The Accelerated Biology class of GDA science 
teacher Hal Scheintaub was chosen by MIT 
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) last spring to 
be videotaped as an exemplary model of using 
technology in science education. To view 
"Case Study: Integrating Technology in the 
Curriculum Using StarLogo," (with audiovisual 
clips of GDA students), please go to http: //educa- 

Seniors Earn Accolades 

Russell Bradley '05 and Hilary Scheintaub '05, 
both of Byfield, were named Commended Students in 
the 2005 National Merit Scholarship Program. They 
placed among the top five percent of the 1.3 million 
students nationwide who entered the competition by 
taking the 2003 Preliminary SAT/National Merit 
Scholarship Qualifying Test. About 34,000 throughout 
the nation are recognized as Commended Students for 
their exceptional academic promise. 

GDA seniors Matthew Ahern, Nicole Dietz, 
Elizabeth George, Rebecca Kelly, Timothy Lang, 
Young Jae Lyoo, Jennifer O'Leary, Caroline Ott, and 
Hilary Scheintaub were elected to the Governor 
Dummer Chapter of the nation Cum Laude Society in 
September. To be considered for September selection, 
students must have earned at least a 3.3 weighted grade 
point average at the end of their junior year and be in 
the top ten percent of their class. In addition, their 
social and behavioral standing with the Academy 
"must be worthy of the honor of Cum Laude and 
reflect credit upon the Chapter." 

Admissions Update 

Fall is always a busy time for the Admission Office. By late 
January, admission officers expect to have seen about 800 student 
visitors. Of those, roughly 700 will submit applications for admis- 
sion. The Open House on October 23 was very successful, and the 
office is now abuzz with numerous mailings and the constant flow 
of visitors and inquiries as office staff recruit potential students from 
near and far. Interest in the Academy continues to be strong. 

Alumni, current parents and past parents can help the efforts by 
referring students to Admissions. If you would like an application 
packet sent to someone you know, please contact the Admission 
Office at 978-499-3120 or As always, if you 
can make it to one of the events on the road, Director of Admission 
Peter Bidstrup and his colleagues would love to see you!

Boston Artist Creates 
Mural of GDA Campus 

Boston artist Sara Egan was commissioned to 
create a folk art mural of the GDA campus to hang 
over the fireplace in the Perry Room of the 
Phillips Building. Using materials from the GDA 
Archives, as well as current photographs, Egan 
painted a representation of the campus integrating 
aspects of the many eras since the Academy was 
established. Around the periphery of the painting 
appear personages of note in the history of the 
school: William and Catherine Dummer, Paul 
Revere, signers of the original charter, former 
headmasters, and others. Stop by to see the large 
painting, which measures over eight feet long and 
almost four feet high. The Allies, GDA's parents 
association, and Patty Doggett, wife of Headmaster 
Marty Doggett, spearheaded the effort and 
financed the beautiful addition to Phillips. Be sure 
and stop by to see it. 

Moodles and Moodles of 
Tech Fun... 

Nine GDA teachers attended the E.E. Ford 
Foundation Week focusing on online learning this 
summer. GDA faculty members Aaron Mandel 
and Susan Chase taught Dreamweaver, which is 
used in building pages for "Elm Street," GDA's 
Intranet. Bob McDonald from the Cranbook 
School and Tom Murdock of St. Paul's School in 
Baltimore demonstrated the use of Moodle, an 
online course management tool that allows teach- 
ers in all academic disciplines to create a virtual 
learning environment to support activities in the 
classroom. Karen Gold, who had piloted the use of 
Moodle in her ESL class at GDA last year, shared 
her experiences with the program. 

Enthusiasm for Moodle ran so high that a 
MoodleMoot New England, a conference for area 
educators and technology specialists, is planned for 
GDA next June with Moodle creator and guru 
Martin Dougiamas coming to our campus all the 
way from Australia. 


Concert Program Cover for Parents Weekend

All manner of performing arts claimed the 
stage on Parents Weekend in October. The 
Big Wind, the GDA Orchestra, the First, the 
GDA Chorus, the GDA Dance Company, 
and a host of soloists regaled a full house of 
more than 400 friends and relatives with 
vocal and instrumental music, as well as hip 
hop dance. 

In October, the Kaiser Building hosted a 
photography exhibit by GDA teacher 

David Oxton, and a pottery show by 
alumna Teaya Bromley '00. A faculty art 
show is currently on display until 
December 5. 

In the Remis Gallery of The Performing 
Arts Center, the Artists Guild, a collabora- 
tive of local artists, held their Annual 
Group Show of watercolors, acrylics, oils, 
photography, mixed media and sculpture 
from October 1 until November 6. 

Currently, the annual "Three Potters and 
Friends" show, representing the work of 
Lloyd Hamovit (also known as husband of 
GDA English teacher Maud Hamovit), 
Dottie Bragdon (aka former "first lady" of 
GDA and wife of Headmaster Emeritus 
Peter Bragdon), GDA ceramics teacher 
Irina Okula, and others, is on display in the 
Remis Lobby until December 17. A recep- 
tion on December 10 offers a chance to 
meet the artists and do some holiday shop- 
ping on the evening of the school holiday 

Coming to the Remis Lobby Gallery is an 
exhibit by Catriona Baker, who teaches 
computer arts and animation at GDA.Trina 
works in animation, charcoal on paper, and 
oil on canvas. Some of the pieces in the 
show will be life-size images of her horses, 
both in oil and charcoal, and a ten-second 

animation of a horse she trained. An animal 
lover and accomplished horsewoman, Trina 
always portrays animals with whom she has 
a relationship, either as owner or trainer. 
She holds a Bachelor's degree from Mt. 
Holyoke College in printmaking and from 
Maine College of Art in painting, as well as 
a Master's degree from the University of 
Pennsylvania in painting and animation. 
The show will run from January 7 until 
February 12, with an opening reception on 
January 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. 

From April 1 until May 15, Boston photog- 
rapher Reginald L. Jackson will present 
"Awon Orisa," a multimedia exhibition that 
includes 50 large photographs accompanied 
by traditional African artifacts depicting the 
natural domains and rituals of theYoruba of 
southwestern Nigeria. The Orisa are 
African deities of theYoruba religious tradi- 
tion. This traveling presentation opens and 
closes with the celebration of Yoruba ritu- 
als performed by traditional leaders; dance; 
and a performance by students and 
faculty illustrating the stories of the Orisa 
through poetry, music and chanting. 
The exhibit, according to the artist, demon- 
strates that Africanisms or African 
retentions exist in abundance in the 
Americas, and that these Africanisms are of 
immense value to our society. 


Monica Duncan 

The Remis Lobby of The Performing Arts Center is the site for a new series of concerts open to 
the GDA community and the public. The series opened in October with a performance by the award 
winning a cappella group, The Jackson Jills, from Tufts University. On December 9, clarinetist 
Monica Duncan is scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. Duncan, an adjunct faculty member at GDA, earned a 
Bachelor's degree in music from Michigan State University and a Master's in clarinet performance from 
Indiana University. She currently plays with The Arlington Street Chamber Players and Symphony by 
the Sea, in addition to freelancing in the Boston area. Her program at GDA will be a recital of French 
music featuring works by Jean-Jean, Poulenc, and Saint-Saens. Pianist Radmiila Hvezda will perform 
with her. 

On January 27, Hvezda, Kristen Miller and Nathan Cohen, all adjunct faculty music teachers at 
GDA, will present an evening of classical music.

Jom D0Hl£tJVl-Mci/l)6 is teaching biol- 
ogy, residing as head dorm parent in 
Phillips, and co-directing the afternoon 
Outdoor Program and Ski Club. A 
graduate of Colorado College 
with a Master's degree from 
Stanford, John taught for 1 5 years in 
California and Arizona before working 
for three years as a Senior Fellow developing cur- 
riculum for the Wright Center of Innovative Science 
Education at Tufts University and for one year as an 
instructor at Boston Evening Academy, an alternative 
high school for older at-risk students in Boston. 

What does GDA offer you as a teacher and our stu- 
dents that is valuable and unique? 

At a small private boarding school, the student/teacher 
experience is much more than merely educational. In 
these close quarters both adults and students grow as 
members of a social community. Each helps push the 
other to open the mind wider and passionately pursue 
interests and talents. At GDA I look forward to many 
opportunities to use the lovely surroundings as a lab- 
oratory for biological field studies which help students 
to gain a greater appreciation for the natural world 
around them.

What does GDA offer you as a teacher and our 
students that is valuable and unique? 

Every day I walk from the history office to the class- 
room, the admissions office, the athletic facilities, the din- 
ing hall, etcetera and while walking to all these places I am 
constantly greeted with smiles and friendly hellos. The 
community here at GDA sets us apart from other inde- 
pendent schools. It is obvious in everyday interactions. 
With our size, we are fortunate to know one another; 
even if it is just as a familiar face! We offer our kids 
an open door in the dorms, the offices and, of 
course, the classroom. It is a community feeling 
that makes the relationships here strong and ever-

Middlebury College, Erin is currently in Dartmouth 
College s MA in Liberal Studies program. She comes 
to GDA after teaching for ten years at Metairie Park 
Country Day School in Louisiana. 

What does GDA offer you as a teacher and 
our students that is valuable and unique? 

Independent schools are about forming community and 
fostering a sense of mutual respect among their different 
constituencies. Because teachers are able to form rela- 
tionships with their students, they are better able to 
understand and motivate them both academically and 
athletically. When it is done well, teachers and stu- 
dents are not adversaries but allies striving to 
achieve a common goal. So far; I have been 
impressed with the friendly and cooperative envi- 
ronment at GDA. 

Pets? Cat named Lucky 

Favorite candy bar? Snickers (When I was in the 
South, they used to tease me about my affinity for

The Rockport Liquor Raid 

of 1 856 and the 

Temperance Movement of 

the mid- 1800s: 

The American Woman's 

Battle for Basic 

Human Rights 

By Marienna Murch '02 

When the fishermen's wives of Rockport, Massachusetts took to 
the streets on a hot July morning in 1856 with axes in hand and 
ready for war, they were embarking on a crusade against demon rum 
that was much more significant than the six-hour rampage through 
town that they would eventually complete; it was a crusade for the 
protection of their rights, families, homes, and lives. They marched 
from store to store, home to home, in search of the illegal alcohol 
that had been corrupting their town, finding 13 reserves that they 
then smashed in the streets. Spilled into Rockport's streets that hot 
July day was not only rum but also pent-up frustrations and furies 
stoked by an American temperance movement that had been brew- 
ing for a generation. 

Liquor, primarily rum, had been a staple of the typical American 
diet since colonial days, and was firmly entrenched in society, partic- 
ularly with men. They drank alcohol with every meal, and often at 
work because of a common belief that it improved skill and atten- 
tiveness.The colonial trade triangles with Europe and the Caribbean 
brought molasses in large quantities to America, especially New 
England, where it was distilled into hard liquor. It was used as a sub- 
stitute for water, which was often contaminated, and had become 
accepted as the beverage of choice from the time America was set- 

While alcohol was not viewed as a problem in early colonial 
American culture, public drunkenness was condemned. However, 
alcoholism was bound to occur, and every town had its drunkards. 

Thus, prohibition began very early in American history, with the 
outlawing of liquor in 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe, who led 
a group of colonists to what would become the colony of Georgia. 
Religious groups, particularly the Puritans, made other efforts to 
reform those who used liquor to excess. 

After the founding of the United States, temperance efforts in 
the North resulted in enactments of temperance laws by various 
towns and states, including Massachusetts. While many of these laws 
were repealed or allowed to expire, Rockport would maintain its 
local law prohibiting the sale of alcohol, thus causing great conflict 
during the mid- 1800s. 

But the common practice in Rockport, according to historian 
Eleanor Parsons, was to ignore the illegal sale of alcohol, as the men 
in charge of enforcement were also the primary customers at the 
clandestine storehouses. The alcohol problem in Rockport seemed 
to be more prominent in the summer of 1856, perhaps due to a local 
depression from the poor winds and fishing conditions. The tension 
was building in the town, and the women's frustrations were grow- 
ing every day. 

All of these complaints and problems seemed to be voiced in the 
tiny home of a 75-year-old spinster, Hannah Jumper. She had moved 
to Rockport at the turn of the century, after her parents died, and 
worked as a seamstress out of her downtown home on the ocean. 
Every day she must have witnessed the sailors coming in off the 
water and heading straight for the taverns.

Fall 2004 

Fishermen's wives found themselves 
impoverished due to their husbands' exces- 
sive drinking. After being out at sea for 
weeks, most fishermen would return home 
and go to the bar before going home, and 
many would spend their entire paycheck in 
those few hours between the ship and their 
front gate. Aside from the financial burden, 
the women also feared the corruption of 
their children, who regarded drinking as an 
essential part of growing up, and an accept- 
able practice. 

By early summer in 1856, Hannah had 
seen enough. She declared, "Desprit [sic] 
cases need desprit remedies," and she began 
planning the most notorious event in the 
town's history For weeks, women met in her 
home and the homes of other women under 
the guise of a sewing circle, as they plotted 
against the illegal liquor vendors. The plan 
was revealed on the morning of July 8, atter 
a long weekend of the men's public drunk- 
enness celebrating Independence Day By 
nine o'clock there were approximately 60 
women and five or six men, all armed with 
hatchets, hammers, or any other tool they 
could find, standing in the town square and 
ready to take vengeance on demon rum. 
Hannah, as the chief organizer of the group, 
led the ensuing raid. 

The fact that the Rockport raid was 
almost entirely coordinated by women may 
seem unusual, as it took place 150 years ago 
when women did not have much power in 
society. However, when analyzing the situa- 
tion of American women, it is clear that the 
1850s were years 'when women began to get 
involved in social reform throughout the 
nation. The history of women's involvement 
in temperance is a story of passion motivated 
by desperation. Women were drawn into 
movements such as the temperance move- 
ment and the fight for women's suffrage 
because, denied the right to vote, and even 
the right to protect their households from 
being destroyed by alcoholism, they felt dis- 

Many were motivated by religion, par- 
ticularly in New England, where the old 
Puritan ideals still held strong. This would be 
seen in the Women's Christian Temperance 
Union, which gained power in the late 
1800s and was a strong influence during 
national prohibition. Another reason 
that religion was a motivating factor 
in reform was that the church was a 
common gathering place for women who 

did not often leave home other 
than to attend services or run errands. 

In Rockport, religion was not a driving 
force; yet, those errands may have been the 
beginnings of the raid. Hannah Jumper was a 
seamstress. She learned of the problems the 
women in her town were facing when they 
came to her with clothes to be mended or 
tailored. The day-to-day interactions of the 
female community, particularly in Rockport, 
became a factor in their actions. Since they 
saw one another often and all had common 
problems, it was only a matter of time before 
the women had the courage to take the law 
into their own hands. 

The importance of their actions was 
that they took matters into their own hands 
when the government failed to protect their 
rights. When the local authorities stopped 
prosecuting those who broke the liquor 
license laws, the women felt that it was their 
responsibility to do what the law had not, 
and remove the "common nuisance" on 
their own. They backed their cause with the 
moral argument that all women temperance 
supporters had used: that alcohol was detri- 
mental to the home and society, and must be 
eliminated to protect the community. 

The influence of the Rockport women 
spread not only through Massachusetts, 
where a group of Salem women followed 
suit with their own raid, but possibly 
throughout the nation, setting an example of 
what could be done for the temperance 

The temperance movement as a whole 
had lasting effects throughout the nation, 
especially in changing the role of women in 
society. Small victories led to larger ones, and 
the women who had begun by trying to 
protect their homes and families eventually 
gained rights many of them would never 
have imagined having. The temperance 
movement was not only a fight against alco- 
hol, but also a much larger crusade for safety, 
influence, rights, and equality. 

One can still see numerous bright yel- 
low bumper stickers stating that "Hannah 
Lives" on Rockport cars, remnants of the 
campaign against a 1996 effort to bring the 
"demon rum" back to Rockport. The reso- 
lution failed at town meeting, quite possibly 
due to the presence of Hannah's spirit in the 
consciences of the voters that evening. E

much longer paper written by Marienna 
March '02 for her Advanced Placement 
History course at GDA in 2001. The 
entire paper, complete with source cita-

Review, the only English language pub-

Editor's Note: On September 20, 
2004, at a Town Meeting in Rockport, 
residents voted 119 to 241 to authorize 
selectmen to petition the State 
Legislature to allow Rockport to create 
its own rules Jor the sale of alcohol. The 
ballot question, to be voted on in April, 
would end 148 years of 'prohibition', 
and ivould allow selectmen to grant 
licenses to sit-down restaurants only, not 
liquor stores or bars.

Bergmann Only Surviving Eyewitness to 
German Surrender in Reims 

In February 1945, General Dwight D. 
Eisenhower established Supreme 

Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Forces 
in Reims, France, outside Paris. Several 
months later, as the war in Europe was rap- 
idly drawing to a close, Capt.Ted Bergmann 
[GDA '37] was assigned to SHAEF in Paris 
as a radio public relations officer. He was 24 
years old. 

"On May 6, my superior said that 
something was going to happen in 
Reims — maybe the signing of the surren- 
der — and I'd better get up there with a 
recording crew," recalls Bergmann, who has 
lived in Pacific Palisades [California] since 
1975. "We got to Reims in the early 
evening and went to the War Room, where 
we set up our equipment. We installed a 
microphone at every chair around the con- 
ference table, and a newsreel crew set up 
lights and cameras." 

At about 8 p.m., Eisenhower's Chief of 
Staff General Walter Bedell Smith entered 
the room and barked his disapproval: "What 
in the hell do you think this is, a 
Hollywood sound stage? Get those god- 
damn microphones off the table!" 

Smith was taken aside by a Navy cap- 
tain, Eisenhower's aide — who also hap- 
pened to be a former CBS Radio vice pres- 
ident — who explained that the event facing 
them was going to be a historic moment 
and should be recorded for posterity. 

"The general relented, but only par- 

tially," Bergmann recalls. "We could have 
only one microphone, which we put in the 
middle of the table, and we couldn't have 
any wires showing. So I ordered a hand drill 
and drilled a hole in the table for the 
microphone wire." 

Bergmann says that at about 10 o'clock 
everyone was told that the show was on. In 
marched all of the Allied representatives, 
who took their positions on one side of the 
table. Then three German officers were 
ushered in. Smith addressed the Germans, 
asking, "Are you prepared to surrender on 
all fronts?" They replied, "We are prepared 
to surrender to the Americans, the British 
and the French on the Western Front, but 
not the Russians on the Eastern Front." 

"That's totally unacceptable," said 
Smith. "You must surrender on all fronts 
unconditionally." The Germans explained 
that they were not authorized to commit to 
surrender on the Russian Front. Asked why, 
they said they feared the Russians would 
"take our armies and march them into 
Russia to be used as slave labor." Russian 
Marshall Susloparoff erupted with gales of 
laughter at hearing such a "preposterous 
suggestion," according to Bergmann. 

Bergmann continues: "The Germans 
were told to go back and get the authoriza- 
tion to surrender on all fronts or there 
would be no surrender. They were ushered 
out and our side of the table broke up and 
left, leaving me there with the technicians

and the newsreel guys. I had brought along 
a bed roll, so I rolled it out under the table 
and went to sleep. Suddenly, at about 2:20 
a.m., all the lights came back on and some- 
body shouted, 'Get up — they're back!' So I 
rolled up my bed roll and we proceeded to 
have a surrender." 

The war was not officially over, how- 
ever. "The agreement signed in Reims at 
2:41 a.m. on May 7 would not become offi- 
cial until the heads of state ratified it: 
Truman, Churchill, DeGaulle and Stalin," 
Bergmann says. "If word leaked out to one 
side before the other, it certainly would 
have caused needless casualties on the front 
lines. Therefore, everyone in the room was 
warned to keep the signing a secret for 24 

"Eisenhower entered the War Room 
after the signing was completed and the 
Germans had been dismissed. A short time 
later, I recorded Ike's statement declaring 
the end of the war in Europe. The record- 
ing was never used, however, because an 
Associated Press correspondent named Ed 
Kennedy failed to honor the secrecy agree- 
ment. Once back in Paris, Kennedy tele- 
phoned his London office to spread the 
news. Then it was on the wire to New York, 
and the surrender was announced." 

Let's now skip ahead to 1990, when 
Bergmann and his wife, Beverly, returned to 
France on a vacation, and he visited the War 
Room in Reims for the first time since the

war's end. On the wall in the War Room, 
which now is a museum enshrined in glass, 
was a large photograph of the signing cere- 
mony (shown on previous page), and 
Bergmann saw that he was clearly visible in 
the picture. "I turned to a custodian in the 
museum and tried to explain that I wanted 
some of the postcards that had been pub- 
lished of that photograph. In trying to 
make him understand, I pointed to myself 
in the picture and said, 'C'est moi, c'est 
moi!' (It's me!) 

"The custodian became very excited, 
as though I had stepped out of the photo- 
graph," Bergmann continues. "No one 
who had been present at the signing had 
apparently ever been back to the War 
Room. Most of the men present then 
were probably in their 50s, and would 
now — if they were still alive — be over 1 00 
years old. The custodian asked me for my 
name and address so that the museum 
could invite us to the 50th anniversary cel- 
ebration of the signing in 1995." 

When Beverly began making inquiries 
about the planned celebration in March of 
1995, she was met with some unexpected 
suspicion at the city hall in Reims. The 
Minister of Culture's office asked for some 
verification of her husband's claim to being 
present at the signing, so she faxed several 
documents to Reims and the Bergmanns 
were finally rewarded with an invitation to 
be guests of the government for the 

anniversary event. 

"We later learned that there were a lot 
of people calling and claiming to have been 
present at the signing, and the city discov- 
ered that none of them were legitimate," 
Bergmann recalls.

ending hostilities in Europe. 

The Bergmanns were wined and dined 

for three days at the May celebration. "In 

addition to reviewing the French and 

American troops marching before the Tomb 

of the Unknown Soldier, I was treated as a 

celebrity and interviewed by American and 

French television and newspapers," 

Bergmann says. "They asked me, 'What 

was your personal reaction when you 

stood at the table and watched the 

Germans sign the peace treaty?' and I told 

them simply: 'We won! We won!'" 

The highlight of the trip was the 
commemoration of the signing in the War 
Room with U.S. Ambassador Pamela 
Harriman and the mayor of Reims. "I was 
honored there as the only witness to the 
official surrender in attendance," 
Bergmann recalls. "I surprised my hosts by 
presenting the museum with the photo- 
graphs and recordings I had made of the 
surrender. I also explained why there was 
a hole in the middle of the table, some- 
thing they had never noticed because an 
ashtray had been placed over the hole and 
nobody ever moved it because the room 
had become a shrine." 

Bergmann then presented the museum 
with something else: a small, porcelain ash- 
tray — one of several that he had taken from 
the conference table as a souvenir in 1945. 
Seeing this, Ambassador Harriman replied 
in mock horror: "You stole it and it took 
you 50 years to give it back!" g

Debunking the Myths: 
The Truth about Boarding Schools 

In a recent showing of NBC's hit tele- 
vision series Law and Order, one of the trou- 
bled characters remarks to a friend, "My 
daughter is being difficult so I sent her away 
to a boarding school." Hollywood strikes 
again, perpetuating the negative mythology 
that surrounds boarding schools. Boarding 
schools are understood poorly, not merely by 
Hollywood, but by the public as a whole. I 
suppose there are some good reasons for this. 
The first lies in the numbers. Upwards of 15 
million Americans attend public high 
schools, 640,000 go to 
parochial high schools, and 
more than 150,000 attend inde- 
pendent secondary schools. 
Only 42,500 attend boarding 
schools. That number is small 
enough that unless someone 
happens to know a school 
intimately or know a family 
member who attends these 
schools, she/he won't under- 
stand the nuances of boarding 
schools. The average person on 
the street associates our schools 
with David Copperfield, 
Holden Caulfield, Franklin 
Roosevelt, Jack Kennedy and 
The Dead Poet's Society. Boarding schools — 
if they are known at all - appear to the 
uninitiated to be schools for the wealthy 
elite, the orphaned, or the dysfunctional. 

I am not sure whether the press about 
boarding schools as a result of all the preppie 
presidential candidates helps or not. As US 
News and World Report noted, boarding 
schools produced four of the leading candi- 
dates four years ago: Bush attended Andover, 
Steve Forbes was four miles away at Brooks 
School, Al Gore spent his senior year at St. 

by Michael Mulligan '71 

Complex, indeed... The variety of 
backgrounds, the high motivation and deep 
talent of the students and faculties, and the 
dynamic and exciting programs in often 
exceptional settings make for an incredible 
education for a very lucky and, relatively 
speaking, few students. Our schools are, in a 
word, transformational. As Headmaster Skip 
Mattoon of Hotchkiss says, "The 24-hour- 
per-day, seven-day-per-week proposition 
provides a total life experience for kids 
which [makes] all the difference." 

You and I know all of this. But 
boarding schools now have evidence 
that the Hollywood myths are, in a 
word, bunk. Two years ago, The 
Association for Boarding Schools 
hired one of the leading independent 
research firms in America — the Arts 
What they Can do for yOUng and Science Group of Baltimore 

and asked it to conduct a detailed 
study to discover the actual strengths 
and weaknesses of national boarding 
schools based on present students' 
and graduates' experiences. The 

high school years." 

Alban's in Washington, DC and, a decade 
earlier, across the Potomac in Virginia, John 
McCain graduated from Episcopal. The sce- 
nario [did] not look radically different in the 
recent campaign and election. Howard Dean 
graduated from St. George's School. John 
Kerry attended St. Paul's. There is much talk 
again about the "old boys' network," elitism, 
and family dynasties. 

This reporting about our schools is easy, 
but decidedly outdated. Boarding schools are 
emphatically and visibly not the elite bas- 

"Our schools 
are second to none in 

men and women who want 
something more from their 

tions they once were. As Eric Widmer, 
Headmaster of Deerfield, notes, "[The old 
boys' network has] given way to the new 
network that transcends sex, skin color, 
socio-economic background, and national 
borders." Yet, as Barbara Chase, Head of 
Phillips Andover, points out, "There is very 
little understanding or appreciation of the 
true nature of these schools. It has to do with 
stereotyping and the use of words such as 
'exclusive.' The real picture is much, much 
more complex." 

intent of this study was to dispel the 
myths and reveal our weaknesses. As a 
result, Arts and Science conducted 
over 2,270 interviews with high 
school students and adults at different points 
in their lives. Interviewed by telephone, they 
were asked about their experiences in high 
school and their lives since. The total sample 
included approximately 1,000 students and 
alumni from boarding schools, 1,100 from 
public schools, and 600 from independent 
day and parochial schools. 

The research zeroed in on experiences, 
outcomes, and attitudes of these students in 
the senior year of high school, at college-plus 
(25- to 26-year-olds), at mid-career (38- to 

16 ThcArchc 

Fall 2004 

39-year-olds), and at late career (58- to 59- 
year-olds) . The findings on boarding school 
student alumni at each life stage were com- 
pared with those of public school students 
and alumni, along with those at independent 
day and parochial schools. Arts and Science 
reported only those where a statistical at the 
95 percent confidence level occurred. 

The critical element here is that the 
research sought to isolate the effects of the 
boarding school experience by controlling 
for other factors that might influence the 
experiences, outcomes, or attitudes of stu- 
dents and alumni. Samples were drawn or 

and are more active philanthropicalfy; 

D. Many of the prevailing negative stereo- 
types concerning boarding schools are 
untrue: these schools are not the exclu- 
sive domain of wealthy Caucasians; stu- 
dents are not "sent away" to boarding 
schools because they are problem chil- 
dren or products of dysfunctional fami- 
lies; boarding schools are not hotbeds of 
alcohol and drug use; and 

E. Boarding school students are overwhelm- 
ingly satisfied with their boarding 

because it came to them at a time in their 
lives when the opportunity to learn and 
grow was so critical. 

The vast majority of boarding school 
alumni are exceptionally positive about their 
experiences. Nine out of ten post-college 
and mid-career alumni, and eight in ten late- 
career alumni, say they would go to a board- 
ing school if they had a chance to do it over. 
Over two-thirds of alumni say they would 
enroll their children in boarding schools. 
And, nearly all present boarding school stu- 
dents and graduates responded that being 
part of a motivated peer group and involved 

"...going away to school during this phase of their lives not, in any Dickensian sense, being sent away. It is, in 

fact, a gift of a lifetime." 

results were weighted to match public and 
private day school populations to boarding 
schools on distributions by socio-economic 
status (for example, self-reported family 
income while in high school), in groups 
roughly corresponding to 15 percent, the 
next 30 percent, and the remaining 55 per- 
cent of American households. The study also 
took into account graduation rates, percent- 
ages earning bachelor degrees, and gender. 

The major findings of these studies, 
which were recently released nationally by 
The Association of Boarding Schools, are 
powerfully revelatory about what thousands 
of boarding school graduates have been say- 
ing for years. To wit: 

A. Students at boarding schools have better 
experiences in high school than do stu- 
dents of similar profiles in public or pri- 
vate day schools; 

B. Students at boarding schools are better 
prepared for college and attend more 
prestigious colleges and universities than 
do students of similar profiles in public 
and private day schools; 

C. Alumni of boarding schools appear to 
advance more quickly in their careers 

The research underscores what is 
central and critical to our schools: the expe- 
rience of willing and capable high school 
students — going away to school during this 
phase of their lives - is perhaps the most 
powerful education that a young man or 
woman can own. It is not, in any Dickensian 
sense, being sent away. It is, in fact, a gift of a 
lifetime. Generations of boarding school 
graduates say that if they had the choice of 
spending their money going to a great

volunteer what the biggest benefits ot board-

What other school heads and I have 
been saying about boarding schools for years

are second to none in what they can do for 
young men and women who want some- 
thing more from their high school years. 1

I arrived at the door of Moody house in 
1966, having spent the four prior years at 
the Rectory School in Connecticut, where 
the culture had been one of overweening 
control. I came to Byfield somewhat aller- 
gic to authority. 

Like the protagonist in Old School, there 
lived inside me a hunger to breakout. 

"Crazy as I was for cigarettes, my true 
addiction was to the desperate, all-or-noth- 
ing struggle to maintain a habit in the face 
of unceasing official vigilance... It was fret- 
ful, laborious work, but when I took that 
first deep drag I went dizzy with pleasure, 
not the least the pleasure of getting away 
with it one more time"(p.30).

The Academy of the early 60s was all about 
opportunity opportunity simply not avail- 
able at most of our local high schools; 
opportunity as yet not tempered by the 
civil rights struggle and the unrest emerg- 
ing from our engagement in Vietnam. 

Opportunity for new friends: New 

friendships readily emerged from the pri- 
mordium of diverse points of view, derived 
from similarly diverse experiences; not a 
few of the friendships so forged have 
proved incredibly durable over the inter- 
vening years. 

Opportunity for intellectual growth: 

Memorable sessions include grinding 
through Plutarch's Lives with Tom Mercer, 
looking out the windows of the old school 
house in the depths of February; Dave 
Williams, steering us through John Brown's 
Body and trying to convince us that sleep- 
ing with SSAT vocabulary lists playing on 
tape recorders under the pillow won't do it; 
Art Sager, hoping he wouldn't call on you 
for an extemporaneous speech; D's with 
Heb Evans in Algebra: A's with Heb Evans 
in Trig; Ray Ohrn, mastering "I should 
hope to kiss a pink pig" in French. 

Opportunity to participate in athletics: 

Having inherited a slight build, my nascent 
athletic abilities had been summarily dis- 
missed at the local high school in 
deference to considerably meatier progeny 
of fishermen and construction workers. 
Participation in soccer, hockey and lacrosse 
at GDA allowed to some degree a resurrec- 
tion of self-esteem and that all-important

"Life is easy to chronicle, but bewildering 
to practice," or so says E.M. Forster. 
Chronicling some of the facts of life at 
Governor Dummer in the 1960s eludes the 
bewildering quality of living through them 
as the secure social conventions of post 
World War II America gave way to the new 
convention of challenging authority at 
every turn. My only entry to those days is 
through the period-appropriate technique 
of free association. So, begging the for- 
giveness of the Masters who taught me to 
revere clarity of grammar as an expression 
of clarity of thinking, I offer a poorly 
punctuated, syntactical swamp of recollec- 
tion — incomplete sentences of the heart, 
rather than the head — to express some of 
my experience of GDA in the 1960s. 

Arrival & Banishment: As one of a tribe 
of teenage strangers, I arrive in a foreign 
land that looks enticingly like the New 
England I knew from childhood, climb the 
stairs to my third-floor garret where the 
sweet scent of Dial soap rising on the steam 
of showers will forever recall the feelings of 
my first year at Governor Dummer. 

Painful Realities: The first day of classes 
— learning of the terrible all-or-nothing 
vocabulary quizzes to be administered at 
least weekly in French and Latin, weekly 
English essays for the next four years, and 
the "ETOAIN SHRUDLU Sure-Fire 
Essay Formula" to provide a safety net for 
those of us who did not know how to con- 
struct a literate essay — and learning that 
first and second-person pronouns as well as 
contractions and slang were forever ban- 
ished from essays; wondering if at 13 I

I spent four years at GDA! Wow, that long, 
and each year a bit different. I cried my way 
through the first year, homesick, yet mak- 
ing new friends and getting care and 
understanding from friends and Masters 
alike. After that, I loved coming back. The 
fall was wonderful, having just spent my 
summer as a sailing instructor, and the 
school was just right. These were some of 
my happiest years, carefree (too much so 
since I was no student!), and sports played 
an important part in my success at GDA. It 
was just the type of life that fit my style. 

I particularly remember the Masters, the 
"old guard" of Mr. Sager, Mr. Murphy, 
Uncle Tom Mercer (whom Tobias Wolff 
rightfully refers to in his first few chapters), 
and the other long timers. Others, like 
Dave Williams, Mr. Spear, Mr. Anderson, 
Heb Evans and Ashe Eames each left a last- 
ing and good effect on me. As did Val 
Wilke. I remember ties and jackets, which I 
think should still be there, as well as sitting 
at an assigned table with a Master at each 
for all of our meals! Yes, the thoughts of 
girls was constantly on my mind, and 
dances, again mentioned by Mr. Wolff (with 
all the right references to dancing!), were 
significant but fleeting as well. And of 
course, a "free day". That was nice! Thanks! $

of its hierarchy of 

character and deeds."

Wolff has captured perfectly the com- 
pelling, common urge within our young 
hearts to fly below the radar, only to 
emerge safe and satisfied we had gotten 
over "one more time." I was not the only 
GDA freshman whose adrenaline pumped 
while puffing on an illicit Marlboro. 

Of course, GDA has changed, and for the 
better. It is co-ed, less authoritarian, more 
diverse academically and culturally. I sus- 
pect, though, there is still radar to operate 

But then, as now, GDA had a higher pur- 
pose, to transform timid youngsters into 
confident young adults. 

In the words of Wolff's headmaster, "Make 
no mistake, he said: a good piece of writing 
is a dangerous thing. It can change your 
life." (p. 47) 

And so it remains with a Governor 
Dummer education. Do not waste your 
time here. Work hard, play hard. Read and 
write. You will hurdle the Mansion House 
Wall, changed for life. And that is a good

girl to compete for meant

understanding of the virtues of interde- 
pendency inherent in the team approach. 

Opportunity for self-discovery: It is the 

universal challenge of the adolescent to 
find that particular interest that will kindle 
the intellectual curiosity required to 
embark upon and then sustain a career. For 
this particular soul, that career became the 
full breadth of medicine, and Biology with 
Bob Anderson provided the kindling. Bob, 
along with Heb Evans, also happened to be 
our lacrosse coach, not an insignificant 
coincidence as my enthusiasm for lacrosse 
was unbridled, then and throughout the 
subsequent collegiate years. 

Opportunity to participate in student 
government: I had the very good fortune 
to serve as President of the Class of '62 
during the transition from a traditional 
socialist Student Council to a more capital- 
istic presidential model. With the two vice- 
presidents, Dennis Golden and Burke 
Leahy, along with Val Wilkie, our 
Headmaster, and the omniscient Buster 
Navins as advisor, we forged ahead with a 
new system of student government. It was 
an experience that set the stage for very- 
similar opportunities thereafter. My current 
position as Chief Medical Officer of the 
Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston 
requires as much understanding of human 
behavior and interpersonal relations as one 
can possibly muster, and that mustering 
process was grounded during my tenure at 

The school not only provided superb 
preparation for further academic, athletic 
and political endeavor, but also nurtured 
the opportunity to round out the

could survive this bleak regimen. Was this 
the preparation for adult life? Was adult 
life lived in the terrestrial equivalent of 

Inculcation: Sunday mornings in the 
clear light of Moseley Chapel listening to 
sermons by a purportedly non-denomina- 
tional Protestant minister whose old-fash- 
ioned collar suggested that Puritanism 
might not have died; allusions to sins a 13- 
year-old cannot fully understand, but 
knows he will manage through the search 
for forgiveness rather than the practice of 

Conformity: With an adolescent mix- 
ture of high ideals and questionable per- 
sonal conduct, my generation erupted over 
the Vietnamese War and social injustice. 
Personal happiness and contentment 
became a badge of shame, or at least 
embarrassment, to those few of us who 
were happy in small ways. My path of aca- 
demic enthusiasm lost whatever standing it 
once had to the studied indifference of the 
rebel and underachieves I learned to dis- 
appear in order to live in private reverie 
and the enthusiasm of learning— desperate 
to avoid drawing lightning by being too 
obviously brainy. 

Learning that even in all the turmoil, 
rebellion, and shattered rules, being gay 
was still a crime. Knowing that merely 
being gay can bring erasure from fife we 
shared — being one of the departed who is 
expelled for reasons too terrible to name at 
Friday evening meeting. Knowing that 
this fate must be avoided at all costs and 
hoping that somewhere there would even- 
tually be a place for me. 

The Life Thereafter: Graduating from 
the sheltering colony of Governor 
Dummer and trying to conceal the gen- 
uine sorrow of leaving a place where the 
protective care of the Masters and 
Headmaster quietly watched over us all. 
Living long enough to find a place for 
myself and to know that the life inside is 
the life to value - learning that the lessons 
the Masters put in our heads were true. 8

A <Jlea/d> ^(MickediMf ^h^ 

By William F Quigleyjr. 

My Dear Father, 

I aw writing for the first tiwe for a long while comfortably by candle light I... am just beginning to realize that I 

bore a part in a very large fight. I intend tomorrow to try and make a plan of the engagement as far as I was con- 
cerned. It is a miracle that we ever got back over that river. If the "rebs" had opened on us they could have killed us 
by thousands. 

A week after the Battle of Fredericksburg, a 25-year-old 
lieutenant wrote this in a letter to his father, part of an unpub- 
lished collection of Civil War letters written by William White 
Dorr to the Rev. Benjamin Dorr, Rector of Christ Church, 
Philadelphia, and now part of GDA's archives. Captain Dorr of 
the 121st Pennsylvania Volunteers was killed in action some 16 
months later, on May 10, 1864, at 
Laurel Hill, Virginia. One of the 
letters in the collection is the last 
he wrote his father but probably 
never sent; he began writing it on 
May 8, stealing moments of rest if 
not peace in the strife and slaugh- 
ter of General Grant's relentless 
assaults on General Lee's army in 
the Wilderness of Virginia, 
scratching a brief fragment the 
next day, but not closing it with 
his customary "Your affectionate 
son, Will." He clearly had 
expected to write more later. 

That last letter, unlike the 
others, in addition to being 
incomplete and hastily written in 

faded pencil, is worn and stained, likely recovered from the life- 
less body of the 26-year-old captain who, by report of one of his 

as he was encouraging his men" in their valiant but doomed 
assault on the Tar Heel troops atop Laurel Hill. 

Why did this privileged, gifted young man, eldest son of 
one of the most prominent ministers in America and having just 
begun training for a career in law, enlist voluntarily as a line offi- 
cer in an infantry regiment? Why did he stick it out, resolved to 
serve his full three-year enlistment, when 
many others in his position, including two 
of his regimental commanders, had honor- 
ably resigned their commissions? What did 
he summon within himself that unseason- 
ably sultry Tuesday evening in the full 
flower of springtime, after having several 
times cheated death at points of some of 
the fiercest fighting in the war — at 
Fredericksburg, twice at Gettysburg, and 
over the last five days in the Wilderness - to 
rally his war-torn regiment, blasted now 
from its full strength of about 750 to fewer 
than 200 worn and wearied men, for a sec- 
ond charge that day into the face of death? 
These are some of the questions kindled by 
Captain Dorr's letters and directing my 
research of his history. 
I have walked in his regiments footsteps on the Gettysburg 
battlefield, I have visited the memorial to Captain Dorr in Christ 

comrades, was "shot through the heart ... [and] died like a hero ... Church, Philadelphia, and I have combed archives from the U.S.

Army Military History Institute in Carlisle, PA, to the National Archives in 
Washington, D.C., to libraries and historical societies from Philadelphia, to 
Harrisburg, to Gettysburg College, to Bowling Green University, to Wilkes- 
Barre and Venango County, PA, in search of the young man whose final resting 
place I discovered to be just across the Merrimack Pdver from GDA, in 
Salisbury Point Cemetery. There, his father reburied him 1 7 months after the 
young man's death, beside his mother; and there, four years later, aged 73 and 
broken-hearted, Reverend Dorr joined them in death, in the town of his birth, 
Salisbury, MA, where his father had settled after having fought three years with 
the Continental Army in the American War of Independence. 

Fame did not come to Will Dorr, nor does the record show that he sought 
it. He did not rise beyond the rank of captain, a line officer admired by his supe- 
riors and respected and loved by the men he commanded. He was not famous, 
but he had about him an unmistakable air of destiny. With his father, Rector of 
"the Nation s Church," he had traveled Europe and the Near East and had been 
introduced to the highest circles of European and American society. As a Federal 
soldier, he fought at the spear point of some of the most storied battles of the 
Civil War. His was the only brigade to break through the Confederate lines at 
Fredericksburg. Six months later, his regiment heroically anchored the Federal 
left on the first day of the three-day battle at Gettysburg. They held the posi- 
tion long enough, against overwhelming forces, that the rest of the Army of the 
Potomac was able to secure better defenses behind them on Cemetery Ridge. 
The surviving remnant of his regiment was then positioned in support of the 
precise point on that ridge that came to be known as "the high water mark of 
the Confederacy," the focal point of Pickett's Charge on the terribly climactic 
third day. All the regiment's line officers were killed or wounded at Gettysburg, 
except this earnest young lieutenant who had what others saw to be a special 

By all accounts, Will Dorr was an individual of rare quality: well-educated, 
talented, sensitive, artistic, and faithful, highly esteemed in life and in death. "If 
to-day or to-morrow, or anytime soon, my time comes," wrote one comrade, 
"I pray I may fall as nobly as did Will Dorr." He was not decorated with medals 
for valor, but he was a hero. His friends and comrades, including Major General 
George G. Meade, commissioned a remarkable memorial to him in "the 
Nation's Church"; its inscription reads "A Christian and a Patriot, Faithful unto 

In his own mind, Will Dorr was no one special. "It is hard for any one 'to 
do their duty in that State of life unto which it has pleased God to call them,' 
and doubly so I think here," he wrote 18 days before his death. This letter was 
addressed not to his father, but to a woman he had apparently met in passing at 
a Sanitary Fair in Culpeper, VA, near the spot where the Army of the Potomac 
had encamped in the winter of 1863-64 and from whence it set out May 4 on 
its merciless march of methodical destruction that claimed Dorr's life at the out- 
set and Union victory at Appomattox Courthouse a year later. "I should dearly 
like to know what kind of a person you are," he wrote this mysterious woman 
of his fancy. "For myself I have little to say. Twenty months in the field has

sorrow. I am single and free. I am not happy. No one is ily to hug muddy ground, literally, for his life? And the 

in this world. I try to be contented & am so far as this biggest question - the question to ask of any war, partic- 

that I not repine. If we were all to follow out the homely ularly of war by a democratic republic, the question that 

rule contrasting our lot with those who are worse off, it Will Dorr must have asked of himself, the question that 

might often render the discon- 
tented spirit content." 

Then: "I fear I am wearing 
out your patience and will draw 
this to an end. If you should see 
any soldiers who wear red discs on 
their hats or caps, you may know 
they are my comrades. If you hear 
of anything befalling the 4" Div. 
5" Army Corps know that my fate 
is linked with it." If he did not 
know his fate, he certainly knew 
his chances of surviving the war. 

Yet he pressed on with the 
fight. Why? Hundreds of thou- 
sands of Americans, on both sides, 
were caught up in what Lincoln 
called "the momentous issue" of

It is my distinct pleasure to once again report that our school had a very success- 
ful year. I am tempted to say that it could not have been better, but the fact is 
that my experience has been that each successive year has been better than the 
last. We strive for this. It is what makes it so exciting to be part of Governor 
Dummer Academy. We have a vision of being the best of our kind. We have specific goals and strategies 
for making positive change. Most importantly, we take actions that turn plans into realities. 

Our unrelenting drive for continual improvement has not been a recent pattern but a sustained effort at 
GDA for as long as I've been associated with the Board ('87) -- and well before that. We have made signif- 
icant progress through the years and, as a consequence, we have created a powerful momentum that 
accelerates our surge forward. 

All of this has happened and continues to happen because of one important element - the individuals 
who give of themselves for the betterment of Governor Dummer Academy. There is a lengthy list of such 
folks that starts with Marty and Patty Doggett who, in five short years, have markedly enhanced the life 
of the entire GDA community with their warm and caring nature. Again, it seems to only get better 
every year. 

There are so many ongoing efforts by the many members of the GDA family that it is impossible to rec- 
ognize them all in such a brief report. Suffice it to say that we are blessed with talented and dedicated 
faculty, staff and administrators. This has been a strength of the GDA community throughout the years, 
and it is as important to the GDA experience now as it was during my time at GDA in the 1960s and that 
of my father in the 1930s and 1940s. However, as good as we have been in the past, the community life 
aspects of the GDA experience have gotten better each and every year. As in other areas, it has been the 
result of a focused and concerted effort led for the past several years by Trustee Cliff Gillespie whose 
passion for this task has been inspirational. 

What fuels the progress and positive change undertaken by people of commitment and passion at 
Governor Dummer Academy is money. It is not a coincidence that the capital campaigns of the late 
1980s and the present one jumpstarted significant years of advancement for GDA. During this same 
time our Annual Fund has more than doubled. As one success builds upon another, the generosity of 
those who have given to GDA leave lasting marks on the school in many more ways than can be imag- 

Thank you for your contribution to our school.

As you know, GDA has a small 
hard working development staff 
that stretches its resources to pro- 
vide six specific services: annual 
fund, capital requests, class agency and alumni contact 
system, reunion planning, and gift stewardship. 

With alumni support, the office raises the annual fund 
dollars which flow directly to the annual operating budg- 
et, supporting scholarships and the education program. 
The Development Office raises the capital needs of the 
school in the form of bequests, planned gifts and outright 
gifts. These funds flow into the endowment. The board 
directs a certain percentage of the income from that 
endowment to support the annual budget including schol- 
arship, faculty and staff development, and the education- 
al program. The trustees work to make the class agent 
system, the reunions, and the other annual events operate 
smoothly promoting alumni interest and involvement. 

In my role as trustee and co-chair on the Development 
Committee I have had the opportunity to review data com- 
paring GDA's fundraising results with those of other 
schools in New England. 

While we are fortunate to have the support of many 
generous alumni and friends, the truth is that GDA has a 
smaller endowment and a smaller Development staff than 
many schools of similar size. Consequently, we often raise 
less dollars and enjoy a lower participation rate than 
many others. We need your help to help us with this 
financial Catch-22. 

As alumni we should be proud of our school. We should 
be proud of the faculty, administration and staff that 
make this school operate at the top of the class. We also 
should be proud of the efforts all those folks make to keep 
us involved and informed. Yet we must recognize that, as 
a group, we alumni could help the school even more than 
we do. 

Thank you for all your past support. And when you get 
the next call or letter from GDA, take a minute and 
respond again. The school needs you. Please say yes.

Doggett. These men represent nearly 
75 years of leadership at GDA, impor- 
tant links in the chain of the school's 
long history. Each era of headmaster- 
ship was unique, reflecting the 
dynamic changes our country experi- 
enced in what was arguably the greatest century of the United 

One might almost dismiss the connection between GDA 
and American history because of the pastoral remoteness of 
South Byfield if it were not for the fact that life at GDA is very 
much a microcosm of the world around us: Our school is a 
major employer. We have customers from all over the world. 
We have a substantial real estate development that is con- 
stantly growing. We spend enormous time and money on R & 
D as we constantly upgrade the product we offer to the world. 
We have legal, environmental, economic, and social issues 
facing us that the largest corporations contend with every 
day. We market our product in nearly every corner of the 
globe, and once a sale is made, the relationship with that cus- 
tomer must be nurtured throughout an entire lifetime. All of 
these aspects of our "business" have evolved in much the 
same way that the nation has, and it is no easy task to be the 
CEO and the CFO of an institution that has been around for 
241 years. 

The corporate metaphor always fascinates me because, as 
much as I want to remember my school experience as por- 
trayed in my yearbooks, I cannot help but marvel at how hard 
people have worked over the years at making this a success- 
ful, enduring business. This success has not happened by 
accident. The five headmasters since 1930 have been strong 
leaders with vision. They have hired master teachers whose 
impact on their students echoes across the years. The four 
business managers, now referred to as Chief Financial 
Officers, since 1938 have focused on managing the school's 
financial affairs in support of our mission to achieve academ- 
ic excellence. And, most importantly, there have been strong, 
disciplined Boards of Trustees who have given support and 
guidance to the Headmasters who have led this school so well. 

We just closed another year with a balanced budget. 
Despite all the "real world" issues with which we contend on a 
daily basis, the Academy is in a strong financial condition. 
Our endowment has rebounded nicely, and the budgets that 
we are building for the out-years reflect our school's long tra- 
dition of measured steps on the glide path towards being the 
finest small boarding school in the country. The Headmasters 
who have led us through this last century and into the next 
deserve our profound respect and gratitude, and as the 
Doggett years unfold, we continue to celebrate the enduring 
"GDA experience."

Naming Governor Dummer Academy as the 
primary beneficiary of a life insurance policy is 
another giving option. This enables the donor to 
retain ownership of the policy and have access to 
the policy's cash value. This type of gift can reduce 
your estate tax liability. 

Should you wish a more immediate tax bene- 
fit, you may name Governor Dummer Academy as 
the owner of the policy. This becomes an irrevoca- 
ble assignment of all rights in the insurance policy 
to Governor Dummer Academy. You are allowed an 
immediate federal income tax charitable deduc- 

Charitable Lead TruAt 

This type of trust provides for a gift of pay- 
ments from the trust property to Governor 
Dummer Academy for a term of years, after which 
the property reverts to you or passes to a non-char- 
itable beneficiary designated by you. The charita- 
ble lead trust, depending upon the manner in 
which it is structured, can significantly reduce or 
even eliminate either the gift or estate tax. 

ReAidence or Farm 

Donors may give a personal residence or farm to Governor Dummer Academy while retaining the 
right to occupy the residence or operate the farm. This type of gift provides an income-tax charitable deduc- 
tion that frees up tax dollars into spendable income without causing any disruption to your lifestyle. It also 
permits you to escape any potential capital-gain tax on the built-in appreciation. 

A single-family dwelling, condominium, vacation home, or stock owned by you as a tenant stockhold- 
er in a cooperative housing corporation qualifies as a personal residence if used each year by you. 


Gifts by bequest will build the school's endowment and provide a stream of operating income to 
Governor Dummer Academy in future years. Charitable bequests may specify a dollar amount or a percent- 
age of your residual estate. In each case, the amount of the gift is excluded from the valuation of your 
estate for estate tax or inheritance tax purposes. 

For more information about giving opportunities, please call the Development office at

"In the Fall of 1932 without benefit of heavy 
machinery-only wheel barrows and lots of picks and 
shovels-studenVs dug what was to become the schools 
second hockey rink (the first was Morse Pond) in the 
area on front of what is now Ingham House." 

"Senior Class Makes an Unusual gift to School," reports a headline in the 
May 1 4, 1 932 issue ofThe Archon. Looking for a gift out of the ordinary, 
the class decided to volunteer its time to dig drainage in the southwest 
portion of the Morse Field to alleviate flooding problems. They began 
digging on May 5 and finished the nine hundred foot system by the time 
the seniors graduated in June 1932. Several other projects followed 
over the next few years, including construction of a five-foot-high dam 
to form a hockey rink later referred to as Ingham Rink, and an outdoor 
board track made up of two 85-foot straightways connected by two 
semicircles banked at an angle of 20 degrees. 

In 1942, a new emphasis was placed on the work squad due to a seri- 
ous shortage of labor in the vicinity of the school caused by wartime 
enlistments. Students were asked to do chores such a cleaning their 
dorm rooms, mopping their bathrooms and picking up the classrooms. 

Other Work Squad projects included: 

• Cutting grass and raking leaves on the lawns and athletic fields 

• Planting over 1 5,000 trees around the athletic field and other 
areas of the campus 

• Building up of the embankment at the first base line on the 
baseball field 

• Filling 350 feet of ditch over a pipe line to one of the dorms 

• Picking 20 bushels of apples 

• Shoveling snow after heavy snowstorms

We would love to hear about alumni's 
personal experiences as work squad 
members. If you participated, please share 
your reminiscences with us: 

•What project(s) did you work on? During what 
years? How many hours a week? 

• Did you think at the time that projects were a 
worthwhile and educational experience? 

• Were there motivational slogans, nicknames or 
campus slang associated with the squads? 

• Was there one project that particularly stands 
out in your memory? 

•Who were the faculty members who worked on 
a project with you? Did Headmaster Eames 

• Do you have any poignant or funny anecdotes 
relating to your work squad assignments?

Class of 1920- 75th 
Class oj 1935 - 70th 

I have received a few notes in recent 
weeks and it appears that most members of 
our group have been staying home. I got a 
break in my local problems during the late 
spring, and was able to take an Elderhostel 
trip to Mexico. The topic of the course was 
Mexico's origin, silver, culture and revolu- 
tion. For those of you who have taken 
Elderhostel programs, I'll just say that this 
one was of their usual high standards. We 
visited Granajuato and Queretaro located in 
the high central plateau, and I was surprised 
to see how European the downtown areas of 
these cities appeared. 

John English '28 reports that he is liv- 
ing happily in a retirement community on 
Cape Cod. He says that he is reasonably 
healthy considering his age. I graduated ten 
years after John and will try to translate his 
last statement for recent graduates. He 
means that if we take our multiple pills on 
schedule we can't complain too much about 
our aches and pains and poor vision. Not 
that it will do us any good if we do com- 
plain. John is still able to be involved in 
some charitable activities in the Yarmouth 

John Whittlesey '33 has been married 
for 62 years, and has been living in 
Chappaqua, NY for the last 53 years. He is 
now almost retired from his law practice, and 
is largely retired from politics. He writes, 
"Speaking as a Republican I just finished 
Hillary Clinton's book and found it excel- 
lent." As an aside, I wonder what percentage 
of our group are Republicans and how many 
are Democrats. I suspect that most of us 

consider ourselves to be 
Independents. On a local basis, I tend 
to favor the "Throw the Rascals Out 

Dana Jones '37 has written a 
newsy letter from Australia, and I'm 
going to quote much of it instead of 
trying to paraphrase it. He says, "I'm 
retired and live in a suburb of 
Melbourne. I get back to the US 
about once a year to see my daughter 
and two grandchildren. My health is 
surprisingly good. I have a small veg- 
etable garden, eight fruit trees and be- 
long to two discussion groups." I can 
only close this report by saying that 
Dana seems to be living the good life in 

Charlie Somerby '38 had major sur- 
gery early in 2004 and had a long hospital- 
ization. He is up and about now and is try- 
ing to get rid of his walker. He did not say 
what the surgery did to him, but he would 
be happy to hear from some of his class- 
mates. He lives at 6831 Oak Street, Milton, 
FL, 32570. 

On Easter Sunday, Bill and Mary 
Ferris '38 went to San Francisco for a repeat 
of their two-day honeymoon. They stayed in 
the St. Francis Hotel as they did 60 years ago 
when they were newly weds. They toured 
the city as sightseers in a limo and saw a lot 
of the same sights that they had seen 60 years 

Marshall Brown '29 is still active and 
living in Ipswich. He and Virginia will have 
been married 69 years next June. I think 
that this makes them the senior married 
couple in the GDA Alumni group. If anyone 
outranks them on that list, send me a note 
and I'll set the record straight. 

Dudley Follansbee '36 reports: 
"Cruised in our 41-ft. yawl for part of the 
summer. I got a gold medal in the Maine 
Senior Tennis Tournament. Unfortunately, 
there is no one left in the over 85 group and 
I had to play with the 75-80 year old group." 

As ever, Hal.

On a recent visit to the Dupont

'37, his daughter Margi P'99, and grand- 
daughter Sarah Avalon '99 serendipitously 
met a kind stranger — Steve Connolly '71! 
Small world! 

John Klotz writes that he's glad I have 
decided to keep my high salary as secretary 
of the Class of '39. Hey, the benefits are 
great but they have nothing to do with fi- 
nancial reward. It's a case of labor of love. 
He will be on the road to Delray Beach for 
the last four months of the year but only 
eight days at a time. John has a new grand- 
son, which makes seven grandchildren. He 
ends his comments with 'WOW! 

Klotz has sent us a portrait of a very 
young Mac Murphy that he commissioned. 
Thanks, John, for your generosity. 

Although only three from the Class of 
'39 celebrated our 65th reunion, it was a 
great get-together. Phil Simpson, John 
Klotz and I toasted those missing classmates. 
The hospitality afforded the alums who rep- 
resented many other classes would be hard to 
beat. The musical put on for the alumni and 
friends of GDA by former graduates was 
outstanding and was topped off by many past 
glee club members singing the school song. 
It was a reunion we will not forget.You don't

have to be a member of a five-year class to 
celebrate. Think 2005! 

Ed Noyes is living the good life. 
Nine months in South Carolina and three 
months in Connecticut with goll in both 
places. He tells us he has found the driv- 
ing iron for long shots. He didn't disclose 
what he was using but it must be good be- 
cause he's staying on the fairway. He re- 
grets not attending our reunion but a 
graduation at Smith College and a reunion 
at Amherst was all he could handle. 

John Gannett keeps busy with all 
kinds of labor for his daughter, although I 
couldn't understand what it was all about. 
However, he's still a seafarer as he's made 
two trips with the Down East Boat Club, 
only dropping out somewhere on the high 
seas because of wind and fog. He always 
ends his card with a question mark after his 
graduation class. For your information, 
John, it was 1939, 65 years ago! 

Tom Tenney sends his regrets that he 
missed the 'big show'. He recently spent five 
days fishing in northern Ontario. He notes 
that the fishing was great but it was cold and 
rainy. He wants John Klotz to know his golf 
and tennis are bad but still fun. Apparently 
he's looking for tips from John. 

Thanks to Chuck Goodrich from 
whom we haven't heard for several years. 
His fondest memory is attending our 50th, 
which would make it 1989, and visiting with 
Buster Navins '31 at his home where he 
remembered the good old days. He and 
Dave Elbogen made the trip together from 
Chicago. If memory serves me right, the trip 
from Boston to GDA was a memorable one. 

You can't believe what I go through to 
get Phil Simpson to write a few words. 
Every issue I have to threaten him with such 
things as taking away some of the luxuries

afforded him at the reunions or even banish- 
ing him from the Class of '39. However, I 
found the secret to get him to drop me a few 
lines. I took one of the return cards and put 
a stamp on it. This time he returned it to me 
using my 37-cent stamp. He owes me! He 
did say that with plenty of rain this year his 
garden is out of control. However, his lake 
has finally warmed up enough to put his toes 
in. He's also been gorging himself on lob- 
ster. He reported that his winter home in 
Kissimmee, FL had hardly any damage from 

A most welcome letter from Gordon 
Tooley, who resides in Brevard, NC, tells us 
that Peter Bragdon stopped in recently and 
they had lunch together. It was a most pleas- 
ant visit and Gordon is counting on Peter 
and his wife to visit them this fall. Gordon 
has five children ranging in age from 42 to 
52. Living in the mountains on 400 acres 
keeps him busy with the help of a tractor 
and log splitter. He also has a large garden, 
which has to be encircled by a chain link 
fence to keep the deer out. His location cer- 
tainly sounds inviting. 

What a welcome surprise! Tom 
Killough is now living at Crestwood Manor 
in Whiting, NJ which is an assisted living fa- 
cility. He has been there for three years and 
seems to be very happy. To occupy some of 
his time he has a horse named Eric who 
makes his home at the Freehold, NJ 
Raceway. Unfortunately, he didn't send any 
tips, although he says Eric has done quite 
well since the first of the year. What course 
did Tom take at GDA to get into this busi- 

As for me, having cataract surgery for 

both eyes occupied some of my time this 
summer. With new glasses my eyes will now 
be focused on some of the finer things in 
life. We stayed close to home this summer. 
Rain and more rain dampened our enthusi- 
asm for traveling too far. The garden suffered 
but the lawn sure didn't. I appreciate those 
who took the time to drop me a few fines. I 
only wish more of you had answered my call 
for news. Maybe next time?

65th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

There's no special news from here. I'm 
living a fairly sedentary life but seem to be in 
pretty good health, all things considered. We 
are enjoying our three grandchildren - 
David in ninth grade, Alline studying for her 
Master's, and Elizabeth a sophomore at New 
Paltz. My wife Joy is most active in com- 
munity affairs, church and especially 
Hospice. I sincerely hope to be able to make 
our 65th reunion and visit with those of us 
still around. Best regards to one and all. 

Bob Little is fully retired and looking 
to move into some retirement facility where 
someone else will do the cooking, washing, 
house keeping etc. and he and his wife can 
study, take walks and drives, and enjoy other 
activities as they desire. They feel lucky to 
have their daughter and her family nearby. 
Bob has returned from a great July/August 
at Plum Island (MA). Family from San 
Francisco joined them and they had a great 
time at this great location. He returned to 
face the challenge of being a Trustee at Holy 
Spirit Episcopal School. 

David Solomon has two new great 
granddaughters. He and his wife feel that is 
really great to have the little kids around 
them again. Otherwise, nothing new. David 
is not completely retired but getting close. 
He sends his best wishes to all his classmates.

are now married - how time flies! I'm lucky 

— still play tennis, winter in California, but 
don't take long trips as we used to. Best 
wishes to all."

Six of our class responded to our re- 
quest for news for the fall issue of The 
Archon. Humphrey Simson covers a year's 
activities on his card: "Another fine winter 
in Stuart, Florida. Took a 14-day trip from 
LA through canal to Lauderdale. Golf almost 
every day. Have had a very good year. In 

30 The Archon <** Fall 2004 

Florida October to December and January 
to June. Summers in Portsmouth, Rhode 
Island. Gave up yachting three or four years 
ago. To Outing, Minnesota for a family par- 
ty. Seventeen people from Colorado, Florida 
and New England arrived for our 56th wed- 
ding anniversary 3 July and my 80th birthday 
7 July. We leave for Florida 3 October." 

At the other end of the spectrum, brevi- 
ty is the order of the day on a card from 
Tom Fenn: "Had a wonderful summer 
cruisin' the Northwestern states for a 
change. Still motoring!" Great to hear from 
you, Tom. 

Bill Kirkpatrick writes that "six of our 
family had a wonderful trip to Paris this 
spring to visit Sally's granddaughter who is 
taking one-half of her junior year at Boston 
College to study abroad. Bill Hill and I had 
fun chat about the picture in the last Archon 
with Norton Cushman, Dick Williamson, 
Dave Jarvis and Palmer Merrill learning to 
be volunteer firemen. We couldn't identify 
the students in the background." 

From Vancouver, BC in Canada Bob 
Harris writes that he is "still here, still busy 
working on yacht and commercial design 
projects, biking a lot, swimming, walking and 
working out at the gymnasium to keep fit. 
Still weigh the same as when I graduated. 
We have a Norwegian Forest Cat named 
Sarah. She is growing old as well as we are. 
I hope you will come this way sometime. It 
is one of the most beautiful parts of this 

From Dave Jarvis a nice note: 
"Summer time and I'm still checking into 
the Chart Room at Cataumet. My son says 
it's only 1 1 weeks full time and will keep me 
off the golf courses, beaches and roadhouses. 
Increasing the number of pills every year, but 
they say it's the Golden Years." 

A note from Bill Hill reads, "Dear 
Classmates: Forget the 300 megs or jpg for- 
mat etc. I am reporting in old fashioned 
readable handwriting. The Hills are thriving 
and healthy! Staying at Popham Beach, 45 
minutes away from home here in Topsham, 
Maine. We plan to travel to Texas for grand- 
daughter graduating from college receiving 
her BS and RN. I see my brother Bob off 
and on. He is Secretary of his Class '48. 
Hang on guys, and come to Reunions." 

On the personal side, Cornelia and I 

spent five consecutive weeks at our place on 
the ocean in Rhode Island. That's about as 
long as we have been there since we were 
kids, where, incidentally, we met some 68 
years ago in 1936. Great to hear from all of 
you who wrote. Next time (spring issue) 
let's hear from some more of the class also. 
Happy Holidays coming up to all of you.

from six. Bob Wadleigh, Bob Morrell, 
Ben Mann and Walt McGill all report that 
they are alive and well and doing a bit of 
traveling and keeping out of trouble with 
volunteer work and some golf. 

The prize this time goes to Decius 
Bebee Veasey (I can still hear Tom Mercer 
intoning that name). He sent a very good 
ten-page epistle on his doings since June of 
1943 along with many pictures. As with 
most of us, due to the unpleasantness then 
going on, he went into the service and saw a 
lot of action. He started in the merchant 
marine at Great Neck, Long Island in 1943 
but felt he'd do better if he could shoot back 
and transferred to the USN. Starting in 
Jefferson, Indiana he got on an LST and rode 
it through to May of 1946 through some 
pretty hairy combat and weather. The list of 
theaters sounds like a re-do of the Pacific 
campaign. He says of his service, "I wouldn't 
take a million dollars for it, but I wouldn't do 
it again if you gave me a million dollars." 
After the Navy, he went to Amherst, worked 
in advertising, transferred to United Shoe, 
then to a bank. They started a Florida nurs- 
ing back home when the idea was new and 
did well with it, growing from 68 to 238 
beds. They now live in Haverhill, Saco, 
Maine and Pine Island, Florida. The descen- 
dants include two granddaughters who grace 
GDA. I'd be glad to send out the complete 
text to anyone who wants. We can circulate 
it through the class. It makes for good read- 

ing and we thank Dick for taking the time. 
The rest of us should do it, too. Cheers. 

Dick Hamilton writes that he and his 
wife spent two months this summer in the 
wilds of NM. "Wilds" as in deer, mountain 
lions and rattlesnakes in the back yard. They 
were guides in the Catwalk National 
Recreation Area in Glenwood, NM (try to 
find that on your map). He says that the 
tourist and the countryside were fascinating.

The 60th Reunion was attended by 
Malcolm von Saltza, Ed Tarbell, Gordon 
Hoyt, Ben Pearson, Jim Waugh, Jack 
Wellman (accompanied by son Mike class 
of 71 and yours truly. Len Plavin had hoped 
to come, but was not feeling well enough. 
Our class had the best attendance of the Old 
Guard. It was good to see these fellows after 
60 years, but without nametags I could not 
have recognized any of them. Age does 
change how we look. We 'were not disap- 
pointed as far as the young women were 
concerned. There were a number of lovely 
ladies. If I remember correctly, the graduat- 
ing class president and Morse Flag winner 
was a young woman. We did not have that 
kind of competition. 

Nat Dummer reports: "Nothing new 
or spectacular. Just the same old things. 
Volunteering in the Meals on Wheels pro- 
gram and some of those seniors served are 
younger than I am. I am continuing to serve 
on two town boards. Received my 50-year 
veterans medal from my lodge of the 
Massachusetts Freemasons. I used to think 
that anyone 79 years old had one foot in the 
grave; that is no longer true." (Secretary says: 
Those of us still in good health need to 
count our blessings.) 

Homer Gibbs says that he grew up in 
Wareham, Massachusetts, so at first did not 
understand my address at Wareham's Point. 
(We moved in April '04.) He says he is 
spending the summer watching the rain and 
fog from the porch of his cottage "on the 
Gut" on Southport Island in Maine. (The 
"Gut" is a relatively narrow waterway be- 
tween the Sheepscot River and Boothbay 

Harbor with a lot of pleasure boat traffic 
normally.) Homer says this summer it seems 
activity is down— whether it's been the 
weather or the economy, "I don't know." He 
says my secretary's note (below) just about 
describes him to a "T". He feels like he is 55 
or 60 rather than the healthy 78 he really is. 
He wishes he could have made the 60th re- 
union, but he had too many conflicts. 

(Secretary's note: When I retired, I asked 
my cousin, two years older, what he did all 
day. He said, "Steve, I get up in the morning. 
I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm busy 
all day and, when I go to bed at night, I don't 
know what I have done.") 

Nick Martin reports: "Thanks for the 
clipping about audio enhancement for bird- 
ers. (It's a special hearing aid for hard of 
hearing birders.) Sounds like a good idea! I 
have a microphone outside our kitchen win- 
dow where we feed the birds so Anne and I 
can hear them sing in the wintertime. It 
works well. 

My report of activities is basically the 
same as last year. Still working five days a 
week, playing tennis three or four times a 
week and bird watching when I get a 
chance. The 10 grandchildren are growing 
like weeds and are hard to keep up with. Our 
trip to Trinidad and Tobago in March was 
great and put our bird fist over 935. Spent 
the first two weeks of July in Michigan with 
friends - tennis every day - had a great time." 

Gordon Hoyt thanks me for the 
"thankless" job for our classmates and says, 
"It was good getting reacquainted with 
friends at our 60th." Gordon goes on to say 
that all goes well with him - "No major 
aches or pains." (Note: I have started using 
that instead of "fine" when people say, "How 
you doing?") Gordon and Cynthia are tour- 
ing in Vietnam and Laos in mid-October! 

John R. "Pinky" Whitney wrote from 
Maine while on R&R. He feels fortunate to 
hear that his grandson, Alex, will be return- 
ing to GDA and has been asked to be a 
"Dorm Proctor" this year. He says, "All of 
this is news to me as Ted Barry was my house 
master my three years at the Academy. First 
at 'Duncan House' — then the last two years 
at 'Ambrose.' Uncle Sam's forces got me the 
last year. So there was no diploma for me! 
How things change!! As you can imagine, we 
make a few trips to Byfield once in a 
while!!" (Secretary's note: GDA should issue 
an honorary diploma to John R. "Pinky" 
Whitney Jr. at the 2005 graduation.)

in October makes me wonder what kind of 
a world our kids will grow up in." 

Warren Furth reports: "We became 
grandparents for the first time — at last - in 
February with the birth in London, UK, of 
Maxwell Farrell Furth who is blessed with 
three nationalities! U.S., Irish and British. 
We had a great family reunion in Truro,

vesting our first certified organic blueberry 
crop three days from now. We go as dele- 
gates to Terra Madve conference of farmers 
in Turin in October at the invitations of 
Slow Foods."

Dick Walsh wrote some time ago that 
he had been selected to the Sports Wall of 
Fame at Newburyport HS stadium. Belated 
congrats, Dick. The Walshes have father '46, 
son '77 and now a grandson '07 who have 
followed the academic and athletic tradition 
at GDA. 

We received Christmas greetings from 
Liz Hemenway and Nancy Maxson. Both 
had sold their homes and were resettled in 
Buffalo and Pittsburgh and trying to begin 
new lives without BREW and MAX. 

I had a wonderful surprise phone call 
on New Year's Day from old friend Miguel 
Ortega who is well and always concerned 
about his classmates (he also called after the 
Sept. 11 tragedy). He is concerned about 
problems in Colombia and is an active par- 
ticipant in the attempt to control the drug 

Bob Hadley has retired from Unitarian 
parish ministry and is living mainly in 
Florida but visits his daughter and grand- 
daughter in Boston and son in Orleans. He 
still enjoys sports, music and nature as well as 
fond memories of his classmates and GDA. 

Lyndy Watkins and his wife, Marilyn, 
celebrated his 75th birthday in Austin, Texas 
with his entire family (two sons, two daugh- 
ters, seven grandchildren and one great 
grandchild). In June he visited a son in 
California and a daughter and her four new- 
ly adopted children in Henderson, Nevada. 
In July, they enjoyed perfect weather while 
on a Princess Cruise to Alaska with 107 of 
their Yacht Club friends. And then they rest- 
ed (I hope!) 

Bob Waugh and Debbie celebrated 
their 50th wedding anniversary on Cape 
Cod in July. They were joined by three 
daughters, a son, their spouses and 12 grand- 
children (all under one roof)! That's what 
happens when you "go forth and multiply". 
Bob says "fresh air and fish are keeping us 
healthy and happy on the Cape." 

I had a nice chat with Warren Hill in 
July. He writes that "nothing exciting has 
happened to us." Knowing Warren, I doubt 
that's so. 

Ted Mixer says, "I'm still alive and 
quite busy." He travels and is acting as a "go- 
fer" for a local amateur theater. Last summer 
his daughter "showed up with three kids, 
two dogs and a baby-sitter - and stayed for 
four months." This summer's visit was short 
and dogless. His wife had a second knee re- 
placement and Ted was "driving Miss Daisy" 
until she took over while he had minor heart 
surgery. Is there minor heart surgery? Hope 
you've mended well, Ted. 

Academic medicine affords Sandy and 
Herb Levine more time to travel. Daughter 
Rachel recently presented them with a third 
grandchild (a boy), and son Andy sells real 
estate in Palm Desert, CA.They spent part of 
the summer on Buzzard's Bay. 

Bill Silver and Marian are happily set- 
tled in a condo in Coral Gables just two 
blocks from their former home. Bill is still 
playing tennis but Marian has been sidelined 
after a total knee replacement. Both serve 
on the Democratic Executive Committee 
and Bill continues to do dental identification 
for the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's 

I just returned after six weeks in the 
Southern Arizona Veteran's Rehabilitation 

Hospital where I had a body "tune-up" and

More News on Jim Knott 

More news on Jim Knott's action 
against the EPA in the amount of $16M 
in damages. It was on November 7, 1997 
that nearly two dozen armed special 
agents from the EPA raided Jim's compa- 
ny, Riverdale Mills, Inc., on the 
Blackstone River in Northbridge, 
Massachusetts. Jim has been embroiled in 
legal battles since that day, and is the 
plaintiff in a $16M lawsuit seeking mon- 
etary damages caused by the raid and to 
expose what he claims were overzealous 
EPA agents who violated his 
Constitutional rights. In 2001, Jim told 
60 Minutes producer that it would be a 
crime to walk away and allow EPA agents 
to do to others what they had attempted 
to do to him. In March, a US District 
Court judge allowed Jim's civil action to 
proceed. The complaint names three 
EPA agents who the judge ruled in 1999 
violated Jim's rights through unlawful 
searches and seizures and selective en- 
forcement of EPA regulations. The EPA 
filed criminal charges against Jim in 
August 1998, alleging he had knowingly 
discharged polluted water into the town 
of Northbridge's sewer system. The 
charges, which carried a maximum fine 
of $1.5M and up to six years in prison, 
were dismissed eight months later when a 
federal prosecutor discovered that infor- 
mation that would have cleared Jim had 
been omitted from his search warrant ap- 
plication. On July 21, Jim was the first 
witness to be called to the stand by his 
lawyer and friend of more than 45 years, 
Warren G. Miller, of Miller & Miller of 
Boston. Jim's legal team also included 
Henry Dunker of Weymouth, 1947 un- 
limited wrestler of the team Jim cap- 
tained, and Jamy B. Buchanan Madeja of 
Boston-based Buchanan & Associates. 
"This civil case took unbelievable 
courage and fortitude, both financially 
and environmentally," Ms. Buchanan 
Madeja said. "There are still some envi- 
ronmental regulators who wear the white 
hats, and the people in business wear 
black hats," she added. "Because Jim 
Knott was willing to stand up and fight 
back against being unfairly charged, some 
assumed he wore the black hat, and he 
doesn't." In conclusion, Jim urged the 
court to find that the United States is li- 
able for malicious prosecution and to set 
a date for trial on the issue of damages. 
The Class of '47 wishes Jim the very best 
in the forthcoming trial. 

-Homer Ambrose 

Henry Dunker comments on Jim 
Knott's case: "I experienced the excite- 
ment this summer of being an eyewitness 
to (and the satisfaction of being a legal 
participant in) Jim's long-awaited civil 
trial — six long years of waiting- — -to prove 
that he was maliciously prosecuted by the 
EPA and the United States when they in- 
dicted and prosecuted him for the felony 
of allegedly discharging acidic industrial 
rinse waters (having a pH of less than 5 
s.u.) into a municipal sewer. The trial 
took place in the U.S. District Court in 

Those with a retentive memory, or a 
penchant for keeping back issues of The 
Archon, will recall the feature on Jim and 
the earlier episodes of his courageous 
battle with the EPA bureaucrats to pre- 
vent them from "dofing] to others what 
they attempted to do to me." The title of 
the feature was "Fighting Back" (Winter 
2001-2002, p.25). 

One thing the trial established indis- 
putably: Jim and his business could not 
have discharged the acidic rinse waters as 
the indictment alleged and the EPA agent 
in charge of the criminal investigation in- 
sisted. Two industrial wastewater experts 
with impeccable qualifications, one of 
whom is a professor at W.P.I, in 
Worcester, testified for Jim that all of the 
industrial rinse waters would be at an 
acidity of 6 pH or above when they left 
his mill. 

The trial also dramatically and indis- 
putably established that the source data 
on which the EPA agent, and thus the 
federal government, anchored the prose- 
cution was substantially altered and falsi- 
fied. The source data was in an EPA in- 
spector's logbook; the data contained nu- 
merous overwriting and alterations that 
the inspector could not explain. 

Unfortunately, because of the strin- 
gency of the law governing the United 
States' liability, the case will be decided by 
the judge on a narrow ground: whether 
Jim's evidence at trial showed that the 
EPA agent in charge of the investigation 
lacked probable cause to initiate and con- 
tinue the prosecution. At this writing, 
the judge (not jury) is still out and the 
suspense continues for everyone.

After a long hot summer and worries 
over one's property directly in the path of 
hurricane Charlie, the question became, 
"Where does one begin?" I guess first I 
should say that we did surfer damage from 
the storm, but time will clear things up. 
Most of our damage was to our yard and 
plantings. Luckily, we have a piling home 
and the water only came up 3.5 feet over the 
entire property. Needless to say, salt water 
raises heck with trees, ornamental flowers, 
and the yard itself. What a mess!

Pike, 12 minutes from 495. Much easier for 
his business travel as he is a Mfg. Rep. for 
three companies and still loves it, even only 
working half-days. This gives him more time 
for tennis and golf and Red Sox rooting. 
"Damn it, the Red Sox will be the death of 
me yet!!" he says. He is about 20 minutes 
away from Buster '31 and Fran Navins and 
sees them regularly. "Both over 90, but still 
sharp. A real inspiration to me — as ever." He 
says his health is still good and does a lot of

A busy summer with lots of travels both 
afloat and ashore. Regarding the shore as- 
pects, the Vermont Maple Syrup Classic Golf 
Tournament was played on the Cranberry 
Golf course in South Harwich, Cape Cod. 
To put a modest touch on the outcome, Arch 
des Cognets and I prevailed against the steely 
professionalism of Irv and Manson. It was a 
unique experience against a wily and steely- 
eyed team. Along these lines there was an- 
other golf tournament, the South 
Dartmouth Shoot Out with Manson and me 
vs. Tom Otis and Arch. The outcome was a 
hard fought draw. 

Thomas Otis adds his 'take' on the golf 
date in South Dartmouth: "In August, Tom 
Emery, Manson Hall, Archer desCognets and 
Tom Otis gathered at Round Hill Golf Links 
in South Dartmouth, MA for an historic bat- 
tle. The Admiral's long soaring drives and 
pin-point putting, coupled with Hall's dis- 
tinctive hockey lunge, resulted in a severe 
thrashing of desCognets and Otis, who will 
seek revenge in 2005. After the match it was 
discovered that Hall played with Johnny 
Bulla clubs (manufactured in the early 
1930s) and Spaulding Dot balls (discontin- 
ued in the 1950s), an amazing feat for the 
ex-hockey jock." 

Another golf-traveler was Bud Frame 
who flies each year to Buenos Aires to hook 
up with his Argentinean foursome. As he 
said, "Last March we flew two-and-a-half 
hours southwest out of B.A. to Bariloghe — 
west of the Andes at the top of Patagonian 
and it is Nirvana. Wow, what an idyllic spot: 
world class polo, world class fly-fishing and 
gorgeous golf, which is why we were there 
with 360 degrees of Andes mountains, glacial 
lakes, rivers and spectacular weather. After 
all, B.A. means 'beautiful air.' Sorry no pix." 
Hopefully Bud will make a concerted effort 
to rectify that shortcoming!

minutes, did better than 
most members do in 
the '49 Class Notes in 
covering points of in- 
terest. As I've said be- 
fore, I hate to disap- 
point those who for 
some reason or other 
depend on me to help. 
So, with that said, here 
goes. I've thought 
about what to offer up 
for this next issue and 
have come up mostly dry. But... I got to 
thinking... do you think folks pay enough at- 
tention to the small stuff in their lives? We 
all know the saying that ends with 'don't 
sweat the small stuff. Well, I think of 'small 
stuff' as being kind of like mortar... you 
know, the cement that holds bricks and 
stones in place. Our lives are made up of 
great vacations, great business ventures, ex- 
citing sporting events where the Patriots run 
rough-shod over the opposition; close tennis 
matches here and abroad; and religious and 
political zealots on both sides predict doom 
and gloom it the party in power remains or 
changes. Gays and lesbians continue their 
fight to gain rights given and assured to oth- 
ers under the law, but denied to them... and I 
don't include the marriage question here at 

With these and many larger problems, 
more profound questions and subjects filling 
our days and increasingly occupying our 
time, it's beneficial, I think, to reflect on how 

grateful we should be for the 'small stuff' in 
our lives. 

For example, the couple we sold our 
NC home to last year, have just left us after 
a six-day visit. Both are in their forties, have 
exceptionally fine positions with recognized 
companies and were really looking forward 
to a change of pace. Well, we did the muse- 
ums, shopped Freeport, did some antiquing, 
enjoyed a few good restaurants and added to 
their collection of Maine art. 

Probably the best time of all came when 
hurricane Ivan came in with heavy rains last- 
ing the entire day. We watched the weather 
channel to see what was going on in the 
Carolinas. We read, joked and talked, all the 
while enjoying the warmth and glow in the 
fireplace when it turned chilly. The four of 
us are very competent in the kitchen and we 
planned and prepared a dinner where all of 
us did some prep work. Between rain show- 
ers, we harvested 25 bright red tomatoes and 
collected some 30 miniature pumpkins. The 
stereo cranked out wonderful tunes from the 
40s, 50s, and 60s, re-kindling memories and 
more conversation - none of which dealt 
with anything more controversial than 
Oprah's giving everyone in her audience a 
new Pontiac worth $28K! We lit many can- 
dles, enjoyed some fine wine and a dessert 
that defies description! 

Small stuff? Yeah, sure. Don't mount to 
a-hill-a-beans. Or, as they say up here, 'don't 
amount to a pee hole in the snow'. 
But... with folks doing and creating things 
together, enjoying one another's company, 
just sharing the pleasure of the quietness of 
the moment, they'll unwind, relax some and 
realize that life without the 'small stuff' 
would be no fife at all. So sweat the 'small 
stuff'. ..Indeed, make room to welcome it 
into your life. We do, and we're all the bet- 
ter for it." 

I had an opportunity to relive some of 
my military experiences this past week at the 
Great Lakes Naval Training Center where 
40,200 volunteer civilians are transformed 
into sailors each year. Gale and I drove out 
to the training center that is about 35 miles 
north of Chicago on Lake Michigan. Since 
I had been the commander of this complex 
in '83-'85, 1 was honored to come back and 
carry out the duties of the Reviewing 
Officer at the weekly graduation ceremony 
held for about 700-800 sailors who have 
completed their recruit training. Whether 
you are young or old, every time you attend

these graduations, your pride soars and your 
heart beats faster when you see these bright 
and dedicated sailors commence their ca- 
reers. One more note — it is unusual to find 
any recruit that does not have his parents, 
siblings and/or other relatives attending their 
graduation. GO NAVY!

55th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

Let's begin with a continuation of Dick 
Patton's January card which arrived as I was 
sending off my compilation of your mes- 
sages. Dick was off to Mammouth 
Mountain the day after Christmas. That va- 
cation week was enhanced by six feet of new 
snow on a base of nine to 1 1 feet. "Each year 
it takes a wee bit longer to get the legs in 
shape." Dick's son Rob is a skydiver with 
over 400 jumps. While enjoying 

Thanksgiving in Hawaii, Dick was persuad- 
ed to take a two-mile free-fall from 14,000 
feet (5,280x2=10,560). "Frankly, skiing has 
brought a bigger gulp than sky diving." 

Emi and I spent February in Australia, 
New Zealand and Fiji. In March, we took 
our children and grandchildren to Ixtapa, 
Mexico for a week in celebration of our 
40th wedding anniversary. Had a great 50th 
reunion at Wesleyan in May, with records set 
for attendance and number of donors to 
Annual Fund. The family gathered in British 
Columbia in July with Emi's relatives. It was 
kids and grandkids at the Vineyard in August. 
Now getting ready to go to Macho Picchu 
and the Galapagos Islands in November. 
We're saving the U.S. and Canada for our old 

Bob Comey and I communicate by e- 
mail (Bob) and telephone (me) regarding 
travel, baseball and GDA. Did you notice 
that Bob and Sallie had two photos in the 

last Archon? One was with our class, the 
other with the Class of '53. The Comeys 
spend time each summer in Maine and al- 
ways connect with the Cushmans. "Bob was 
getting excited in mid-August about the 
Cleveland Indians making a run for the 
Central Division lead as he e-mailed me 
then," says Tim Greene. "I haven't heard 
from Bob lately as Minnesota has a seven- 
game lead on August 23. Oh well, next year, 
Bob. Stick with the Red Sox." 

There was a fine article in the 
Providence Journal on May 9 about 
Newburyport, which was "in the 1700s a ri- 
val port to Boston and a cosmopolitan cen- 
ter of shipbuilding, commerce, craftsmanship 
and letters." That was the setting in 1763. 

The Southeastern New England dele- 
gation of the great GDA Class of 1950 gath- 
ered at the home of Souther and Fran 
Barnes, and then dined overlooking 
Plymouth harbor, on June 13 to welcome 
Charlie and Calvine Bowen who had 
driven from Chicago for Charlie's 50th at 
Trinity. A tremendous time 'was had by all. 
Grateful thanks to Fran and Souther. 

Charlie responded with appreciation for 
our hospitality and sent a picture of the 
group. "We're still traveling — off to Greece 
in October for a week and then taking a 
cruise from Athens to Dubai on the Silver 
Cloud. Looking forward to our 55th in 

Dave Esty no longer qualifies as a 
member of the SENEGDA group, but is al- 
ways welcome at our events. Dave sent the 
following e-mail message in July. "I stepped 
down after all those years as the class prez - 
65 percent showed up for our 50th, 97 per- 
cent gave % - 'twas time to go out on top." 
David's message to his Amherst classmates 
also announced the move that he and Betsy 
have made back to Mad River Valley in the 
Green Mountains of Vermont. "Nearby 
kids/grandkids, multiple, four-season sports, 
plenty of culture, unmatched lifestyle. 
Burlington airport — our gateway to the 
world. My coordinates... probably until the 
sun sets on me." Dave added on his card, 
"One of my goals is to become the oldest ski 
patroller in America. Not retired, am in a 
business venture with one of my Seattle sons, 
active on a few boards, not old enough to 
retire." Dave's current response to 

Class is rural. 

In a padded envelope with Roberto 
Clemente and Lou Gehrig stamps came Bob 
Dickerman's remarks and the picture, 
which is priceless. "Caught four innings in 
the Amherst alumni game. Spent my third 
summer at Camp Agawam in Raymond, 
Maine (where Dave Esty spent his youth). 
Won't be back at Gordon College (I hate to 
admit it, but the commute wore me down). 
Expect to be hurling BP somewhere in the 
spring. Look for me at Turner Field in 
October." It sounds as though Bob expects 
the Atlanta Braves to be post-season com- 

From Dick McCoy: "Been busy with 
summer visitors. Fishing and lobster ing have 
been good. Planning to go to London for 

The card from Carl Glaser in 
Washington says, "What a fantastic summer 
we have enjoyed in the Northwest. For over 
six weeks we had temp, in 70-80-90s. Plenty 
of time for golf, swimming, canoeing and 
fishing. Lots of quality time with grandkids 
plus great grandkids. September starts third 
year of officiating at high school volleyball 
and 32nd year of church services at nursing 
home." Let's get a report on great grand- 
children ready for our 55th in June, 2005. 

Bill Fletcher reports: "My wife and I 
attended my 50th reunion in June at 
Middlebury. We had a really great time. 
There have been so many new buildings and 
developments on campus over the last 25-50 
years it was hard for me to believe this was 
the same college I attended in 1954. 
Vermont and the Green Mountains are still 
as beautiful as ever." 

Don Bishop tells about "summers in 
Brooksville, ME, June-October, winters in 
Eastham, Cape Cod, sailing plus small lobster 
boat for fun — four granddaughters — three in 
RI, one in VT, all well and growing fast - 
Saw Gordon Price '49 on his trawler here 
in the harbor last week - phone contact with 
George Tulloch whom we promised to vis- 
it in MD to check out his retirement meth- 
ods. 55th in 2005. Amazing." 

I received an eight-page essay from 
Peter Gavian regarding his sloop, Antretam. 
Included are specifications of the vessel and 
a journal reporting the events of a round- 
trip between Annapolis, MD and Scituate, 

36 The Archon *** Fall 2004 

MA. "Our original objective had been to 
cruise the southeast coastline of 
Newfoundland but our intended crew had 
cancelled on three days notice so I was sail- 
ing single-handed." I'm passing the entire 
document on to Sandy Keyes in the Alumni 
Office. Thanks, Peter. 

Bob Cushman says, "Continue enjoy- 
ing an active, peripatetic retirement with 
Maine summers, Maui winters and 
Marblehead in-between. Lucky that our 
health has suffered only minor blips so far. 
Tim Greene and I enjoyed our Bowdoin 
50th wondering how our classmates could 
look so old. Had a good time being with 
Bob and Sallie Comey in August as usual." 

For reasons unknown, George Tulloch 
was unable to get an email through to me 
with all his news. We did talk on the phone 
about topics such as the GDA delegation at 
the Amherst 50th. George's wife Benson has 
relatives in Marion and Woods Hole, MA. 
They visit SENE often. A dinner party 
seems inevitable. 

We began with Dick Patton and we'll 
close with his most recent remarks. "Just got 
back from two weeks in Alaska. Chased a 
few ghosts in Fairbanks where I lived as a 
kid. The city has grown from 2,500 in 1938 
to 36,000 and is the second largest city in the 
state. The untamed beauty and lack of de- 
velopment make Alaska one of the few re- 
maining frontiers. I measure time by ski sea- 
sons and a new one is about to start. Wish 
the bones were as able as they were ten years 
ago, but at least the skis work pretty well." 
Who knows what Dick's next adventure will 

The dates have been set. June 10-12, 
2005 will be our 55th reunion. Mark your 
calendars. We now qualify as members of the 
Old Guard, so drinks, etc. are on the house. 

Don't miss the fun and festivities with old

you're having fun!" He's still waiting to hear 
from Fearless Fred Franzius about the next

be fine, as the crowds may have left by then." 

George Kirkham sent a quick note. 
"Drove by GDA at 75 mph rushing to 
Maine. Hope I can stop next time. Anyone

"I teach no longer; I have written my

our 55th and hopes others will be coming. 

Our esteemed president, George 
McGregor, profoundly states he is "still

information about the participation of vari-

'51 to do better. George wrote that our

asking you give 'something' to increase our 
class participation, did you help? Also, did 
you figure out how many triangles were in 
the square? It not, try again." 

Don Tracy e-mailed the following. 
"Approaching 70 and it seems like there is 
no slowing down. A wonderful summer here 
in Maine. Soon we leave for two weeks in 
Italy to visit our daughter and her Italian 
family in Como. While there we've been in- 
vited to stay at a home on an island in the 
Adriatic Sea. We've never been to that part of 
Italy. Hope to rest up and sample some of 
those Tuscany wines. Only feature I don't 
look forward to is the traveling over and hav- 
ing to carry Maine lobsters a quarter way 
around the globe. It's tough on us Maine-ahs 
having to bare up under the global reputa- 
tion of and demand for this delicacy!" 

Charlie Palmer liked his first bypass so 
much, that he had a second one. One of the 
benefits was that he lost 45 lbs. That's doing

it the hard way. He says he's fully recovered 
and all is well with him and his family, and 
that they were all headed for Cooperstown 
(his first time). 

Windy Gale is faring better than the 
Palms. He made it to 70 in one piece with 
all his parts intact. He sends greetings to all. 

Tom Windle's card arrived the day af- 
ter Hurricane Charley ripped through 
southwest Florida, announcing that after 35 
years at 24 Sturbridge Road in Wellesley, 
MA, they have moved to Dennisport, MA 
for the summertime and Bonita Springs, FL 
for the wintertime. Hopefully, Tom's place 
sustained minimal damage. Their daughter, 
Jill, is getting married in the spring of 2005. 
She's the last to be married, which means 
Tom and his wife will be past the college and 
wedding payments phase and able to relax 
and enjoy life. 

Joe Hill writes: "Retirement... er... 
slow down... looms. Worldwide- angst, jittery 
markets and 30 years of diabetes are taking 
their toll. We've come through a lot in my al- 
most 70 years, and we shall see this pass also. 
Still sailing, smiling, and drinking from a 'half 
full glass'. My father said it was better to be 
lucky than smart. Boy, was he right!!!" 

Scott Lothrop writes: "I started to 
write this weeks ago, but I guess I've been 
chasing hurricanes ever since. We were very 
lucky. Of the three hurricanes that threat- 
ened, only one (Frances) actually hit here 
and, by the time it did, the winds were be- 
low hurricane force. We had no damage at 
all, but there was so much flooding of the 
roads that we couldn't get back to our house 
for several days. So we spent the weekend in 
a shelter, working as Red Cross volunteers. 
Quite an experience. 

"Otherwise, I'm enjoying retirement to 
the hilt, after 40 years in educational fund 
raising. We love to travel, and are going to 
China and cruising on the Yangtse in April. 
We were supposed to go this past April, but 
I had open-heart surgery in November of 
2003, a triple bypass, and had to curtail heavy 
traveling for a while. Just one of the penal- 
ties, I guess, of reaching such an advanced 
age. I'm on the boards of two community 
theater groups and also do some acting 
whenever I can find a good old-guy part. 
Have also done a lot of genealogy work, in- 
cluding two books relating to my family and 
my wife's. And I construct puzzles for Penny 

Press magazines, similar to crosswords but 
different (they're called Syllacrostics) 
Hopefully, Mr. Mercer would be proud! 

"So that's about where I stand at the 
moment. Hope all is well with you." 

Life at the Pinkhams is busy, as usual. 
Lots of town issues to work on. A national 
juried art show that we've worked on since 
January opens this weekend (570 entries). 
Kids coming in late September to enjoy the 
fall color and the elk rut. (We have 3,000 elk 
wandering around the valley and town.) 
And we have a delightful Rotary Exchange 
student from France staying with us this fall, 
so we're enjoying introducing her to the 
mountain country. 

Hope life is treating you all well. Enjoy 
every moment.

What a Reunion!! Not only did the 
Class of 1954 win the "Triple Crown" in 
giving but we had a great turnout (26 by my 
count) at the Reunion itself - better than 50 
percent of living classmates. The weather 
was fabulous, and the renewed friendships 
even better. Tom Larsen is spearheading an 
effort to get us all together again next year in 
the California Wine Country. Please let him 
know at if 
you're interested. 

Thanks to the Class's generosity, we 
were able to establish an Archive Fund, an 
undertaking that will be discussed in future 
issues of The Archon. 

Bob Abbott dropped a line, and to 
quote him, "What else can be said after our 
50th!" He added that Tom Larsen showed 
up at Bob's house with the Lug's GDA grad- 
uation photo. Bob's comment was that he 
was losing hair even then. Larsen also sent 
your Class Secretary a photo of the Class's 
40th Reunion with the snide comment that 
Dick Pew and John Raymer look the same 
then and now because they never did have 
any hair. Tom should talk - he sent in a pho- 
to of Nancy and him at the Devil's Tower in 

Wyoming. It's difficult to determine who 
has less hair - the Tower or Tom. 

Dave Alven writes that he has a new 
address - 4 Fiddler Crab Court, Bluffton, 
South Carolina 22910, tel 843 815 2207, e- 
mail Kathryn and 
Dave are hoping to join the Class gathering 
in the Napa Valley next year. 

Tom Larsen e-mailed a letter saying, 
inter aha, "What a thrill it was to see 
Brothers reconnect after 50 years" and that 
"the Academy outdid itself putting on a fab- 
ulous weekend for our Class." Tom also 
wrote that Nancy and he spent an exciting 
week in Sturgis, SD in August at that 
town/village/crossroads Annual Bike Race, 
cycling to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, 
the Bad Lands, and the Devil's Tower (see 
above under Abbott) . 

The Class extends its sympathy to Dick 
Michelson and his family over the recent 
passing of his daughter, Sharon. 

Dodd Miles sent a note of appreciation 
to the Class for all the words of encourage- 
ment as he undergoes medical treatment. 
Tom Larsen and John Raymer traveled to 
Little Rock after the Reunion to give Dodd 
mementos from the Reunion and his copy 
of the Reunion Book. They had a wonder- 
ful time with Barbara and him. 

John Nash writes that he had a great 
weekend with old friends at the Reunion 
and suggested we begin an e-mail/phone ef- 
fort in five years to get all who weren't there 
(and live less than 100 miles from GDA) 
back for our 55th. John's e-mail address in

Brightest Class, 1900-2004 by an independ- 
ent research bureau located in Boscawen, 
N.H. Class members are predominately en- 
joying their recent well deserved retirement 
from their incredibly successful academic 
and business careers. Frank Gleason, for ex- 
ample, taking leave from a brilliant tenure at 
Santa Rosa Junior College (California), is 
conducting research at The University of

seas off the Aussie coast. Jeff Fitts, one of our 
many Snowbirds, departs the warm, sunny 
shores ofWolfboro, N.H. for hurricane-rav- 
aged Sarasota. Possibly a different story in 
February. Possibly. 

There are still those of us, however, 'who 
hang on to their careers with the dwindling 
hope they can truly make a difference. With 
the exception of the Class Secretary, I don't

there. Having merged with our counterpart

active pilots, having learned to fly in 1986. 
They obtained their instrument ratings and 
own a Cessna 172. They have made about 
ten cross-country flights in their Cessna. 
Anne is actively involved in Women's Air 
Racing and is quite competitive in that 
sport. Mike and Anne have enjoyed terrific 
vacations in Greece and riding the American 
Orient Express from Vancouver to Montreal. 
Mike built an ultra-light plane from scratch 
and is now working on a Zenith 601XL, 
which is an aluminum, low-wing plane. 
When built, Mike intends to fly it. 

While not flying to great heights, Mike 
Dunsford is still backpacking in the Sierras 
and hopes to undertake a lengthy trek in 
Switzerland with Ann in the near future. 
Mike also spends lots of time visiting the 
Napa Valley to check up on his grandchil- 
dren. Mike also reported that his brother 
Don '56, passed away last year. 

Chick Carroll recently constructed 
from scratch a log cabin home in Topsham, 
Maine, after living onboard a boat for five 
years. He enjoyed the experience so much 
that he and a friend are now buying other 
homes to fix up and sell (hopefully at a prof- 
it). When not working, Chick is still kayak- 
ing and plans to spend significant time this 
winter paddling in Florida. 

Wayne Hockmeyer is now living on a 
catamaran sailboat in Miami, except when 
running away from hurricanes. He sold his 
interest in Northern Outdoors in Maine last 
year, but is still heavily involved with his fish- 
ing business and his superlative fly known as

Only Nuff Withington seems to 
lead a boring life. Same wife, same kids, 
same job, same last-place Yakima Bears, but 
no more Locke-Ober's (which he sold last 
year). Nuff concludes, "Life is good." 

Earlier this year, Jim Main, a retired 
sales manager for Japan Airlines, was in- 
stalled as the 55th President of Skal 
International San Francisco. If you are 
wondering what "Skal" is, it is a world- 
wide organization of over 25,000 travel 
and tourism professionals in over 80 coun- 
tries networking in the spirit of friendship 
and peace. Jim is obviously staying busy. 

Even though Richard Morse is sup- 
posed to be retired, he continues to travel 
back to Kenya to provide services at 
Tenwek Hospital. His son Rick, also a 
medical doctor working with the World 
Gospel Mission, is on special assignment in 
Uganda. Richard stills hopes to get back to 
GDA some day. 

Max Brace is now retired from the 
metals distribution industry and recently en- 
joyed a marvelous trip to Hawaii with his 
girlfriend, Gail, and her two daughters. 

Joe Berry sent in brochures for his 
business in Avon, Connecticut, known as 
The Annuity Center. One can safely assume 
that Joe sells annuities. 

Peter Smith has moved to Sante Fe, 
New Mexico, and is working at the Los 
Alamos National Laboratory developing 
software for computed tomography, whatev- 
er that is. 

Ralph Ardiff is still working, although 
not as much as in years past. He plays golf 
regularly and enjoys spending time with his 
three grandchildren — baseball, wiffle ball, 
hiking, canoeing and even a little golf. He 
again completed a two-day, 192-mile bicycle 
ride for the Jimmy Fund (cancer research) 
and meant to make contact with Fred 
Sayles (happily and actively retired from the 
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute) and 
Skip Dickerson '57, but was too tired to do 
so. Maybe next year. Do you notice how 
lots of self-important folks refer to them- 
selves in the third person? 

Lots of retirements and activities with 
grandchildren and hopefully lots of good 
health for the Class of 1958. 

Fergjansen '59 spent 10 days of salmon and rainbow fly fishing in Alaska last August.

I was unable to attend this year's 45th 
Reunion. However, Peter Sherin was there 
and faithfully penned the following: 
"Reunion weekend brought ten graying, but 
remarkably fit (not one cigarette smoker in 
the group!) members of the class of '59 to- 
gether for its 45th. Even with all the new 
buildings and facilities, the campus has re- 
tained the look and feel of the school we re- 
membered. The highlight of the weekend 
seemed to be our class's gathering for 
Saturday lunch. Jim Foley seems very com- 
fortable in his retirement from dentistry. 
Steve Volpone had to leave before dessert to 
suit up for the alumni baseball game. He can 
throw, field, and hit well enough to earn a 
starting position. Ferg Jansen still tries to 
get the last word with Fred Huntress. 
Maybe someday, Fergy, but not yet. Asking 
Peter Sherin to head up a fund raising drive 
for our next reunion, Fred opened his wallet 
and a moth was seen to fly out. Earlier in the 

day, Bob Pouch read names of our deceased 
classmates: Dana Atchley, Bill Brian, 
David Cates, Keith MacNutt, and Jeff 
Wilson. Because of his professional expert- 
ise with shipping, Bob was recently called to 
active duty by the Navy. Thankfully, he will 
serve while remaining in New York City. 
John Catlett is soon off to Afghanistan on a 
radio assignment. Travel safely, John. Leaving 
his home in the mountains ofVail, Charlie 
Langmaid stopped at GDA en route to the 
rocky coast of Maine. Ted Bliss brought a 
degree of dignity to this motley crew, while 
three lovely women, Bob's wife Susan, Ted's 
wife Virginia, and Charlie's wife Patti provid- 
ed the charm. Bill Donnelly and his wife 
Joanna Carr missed the lunch having to leave 
to take care of a family matter. Alan Tucker 
would have liked to come but hasn't felt that 
well lately. We wish him the best summer. 
And a thank you to Bill Whiting and Rick 
Friend for their work organizing the re- 
union. Both had family commitments, 
which prevented them from attending." 

Thank you, Peter. In addition, Jim 
Foley tells us he thoroughly enjoyed re- 
union, seeing some classmates he hasn't seen 
in 45 years. He found that being an instruc- 
tor for two years at a seven-week summer 
camp was enough. He has an old farm trac- 
tor that he rides around in his fields practic- 
ing to be a real Mainer. He did not get his 
turkey this year and, of course, they all 
showed up after the season was over.

45th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

Heard from a few classmates this time! 
Would love to hear from more! 

Geoff Nichols writes that they are get- 
ting ready to spend five to six months on 
their farm in Ocala, Florida, for the second 
year. He states that they look like two Oakies 
when they leave Vermont with four horses, 
two dogs, two cats, etc. (I wonder if they 
would still look like the Oakies if Geoff 

went separately!) They enjoyed their first 
winter there, but still have their roots in 
Vermont. He shares that they are fortunate 
to have four grandkids and parents living in 
the same town. Geoff says that it is "won- 
derful to watch them grow and develop." 
Geoff, I was in the Ocala area last March. 
Spent several days in Romeo and Rainbow 
Lakes Estates areas, but unfortunately I got 
sick on the way down and had to turn 
around after two-and-a-half days and drive 
back home. Maybe this March we will run 
into each other. 

Brad Conant proudly shares that, after 
three years as assistant AD at Miss Porter's 
and a year as AD at Moreland Hill, their 
daughter, Elizabeth, has been asked to be the 
Athletic Director for Miss Porter's. She 'will 
be the youngest AD in her conference. Isn't 
it great when our kids are successful! 

Duke Morton and his wife Julie re- 
tired in Pocasset (Wings Neck) on Cape 
Cod. Norm Kalat and his wife, Susi, visit- 
ed with them recently. Duke's and Julie's 
son Rob had the first "Morton" grandchild, 
Amelia Parker Morton — born October 
2003. Their daughter Wendy and her hus- 
band Randy continue to expand their 
beer/ wine business in Nantucket. They now 
produce "Triple 8" vodka, which is sold 
throughout New England. I wonder how 
the name Triple 8 came to be! 

Changes have been occurring in the 
Carl Youngman household. Carl's wife, 
Joan, retired after teaching in the Quincy 
School System since 1967. Congratulations, 
Joan... you have earned your retirement! 
Their son Andrew is leaving Boston to take 
a new job with Marakon in Chicago, while 
their daughter Julie got engaged and will be 
married next summer. 

The Elwell family is doing well. Wife 
Carol continues to teach in the Amesbury 
Public School System. Our oldest son, Che, 
is a project manager at ManuLife in Boston. 
He and his wife, Jacki, gave us a beautiful 
granddaughter on January 9. In fact, they 
told us in December that they were having 
the baby in January. Figure that one out!!! 
There is a logical answer. (You can submit 
your answer in the next mailing. ..a special 
prize to whomever figures it out.). Number 
two son, Kane, continues to work on a pro- 
totype sign painting and extrusion machine 
in Columbus, Ohio, at the Custom Sign 
Center. To support his development venture, 
he does retrofits on sign machines up and 

down the East Coast. Our daughter, Erin 
'92 and her husband, Eric, along with their 
son, Ai dan, have moved in with us while they 
build a new home in West Newbury. Eric 
works for Phillips in Andover while Erin is 
an OT at Salem Children's Hospital. And, 
son, Jonathan, earned his BA in Biology from 
Westfield State College and is teaching at St. 
John the Baptist Middle School in Ludlow, 
Mass. Yours truly is doing a little educational 
consulting, teacher training, and administra- 
tive mentoring while working the land at 
our Maple Crest Farm in West Newbury. 
Have planted 1000 Christmas tree seedlings, 
1000 strawberry plants, 100 raspberry bush- 
es, and 25 blueberry bushes. While farming 
may seem romantic, I have found it to be ex- 
pensive and lots of work. Local farmers have 
a perfect response when someone asks them 
how long are they going to farm. "Until the 
money runs out!" 

Don't forget: if you are in the area, stop 
in. Would love to see you! Start planning 
now for our 45th reunion in June. My time 
is up, and I thank you for yours. I'll leave the 
porch light on for you.

With some determined foraging, the 
Class Secretary Team of Tim & Tom rooted 
out interesting news from our classmates. 

Albie Booth emailed an intriguing 
photo of himself and his new wife Claudia 
on a golf course in Scotland. Regarding the 
recent changes in his life, he wrote, "After 
losing my wife of 35 years, Lorine, to cancer. 
I married Claudia on Maui on January 1, 
2004. Each of our two girls joined us in 
Maui and we spent our honeymoon in 
Australia and New Zealand. We are living 
full time now in Tucson but we try to leave 
in the hot summers. We have visited Dave

some golf this last February, (editor's note - 
NB: Golf is a big theme here! This is a 
PJEAL RETIRED person.) I am very happy 
to have found Claudia and look forward to 
many years ahead. Both my girls, Stacey and 
Katie, are fine and visited us in June. Heidi is 
Claudia's oldest and is expecting in October. 
Heather, Claudia's youngest, is on the big is- 
land and opening her yoga studio." Even 
Albie seemed surprised to have married and 
become a grandfather in one year. In a fol- 
low-up phone call, one other small detail 
emerged... Katie has a new pet: a 50-lb. 
Mastiff puppy that full-grown will be 250 

lbs! That's one big diaper clean up for grand- 
pa! Congratulations on all accounts, Albie. 

Classmates might consider sending 
Peter Boynton their tax refunds so he can 
expand his noble efforts. Still wrangling the 
Washington, DC Beltway, he's not only 
spending your money but would like you to 
get involved as a volunteer. For five years, 
he's been with the Corporation for National 
and Community Service as a Senior 
Program Officer for the Senior Corps, a fed- 
erally supported community volunteer mo- 
bilization for folks age 55+. Peter writes, 
"Most of the half million or so volunteers 
are enrolled by local grantees of the RSVP 
program and do things like tutor kids, clean 
up the environment, help at libraries, and 
serve on Neighborhood Watches. One of 
my latest jobs is to give away your tax dollars 
to grantees that use volunteers to support lo- 
cal Citizen Corps Councils and other disas- 
ter preparedness and response programs." On 
the home front, Peter and Jacqui have five 
grandkids on Peter's side and one grand- 
daughter on Jacqui's side, all within 15 min- 
utes. Keeping the Beltway together, Peter's 
lunched several times with Ranny 
Langenbach '63, after reading an Archon 
article about Ranny and his interesting work 
in Iran. He's also rounded up Tony Garland 
and his wife Noe several times. 

Your editor Tim Hill is still living by 
the beach in Santa Monica, California. I am 
now in the third year of my real estate career 
and loving it. I still have one foot in the 
movie world as my wife Danielle continues 
to write movies. Living a mere ten- minute 
walk from our first grandchild has put us on 
the approved babysitter list for our son Brin, 
a writer/ director, and his wife Tamar, a 
lawyer. When not on real estate or babysit- 
ting duty, I am working on my shepherding 
skills with my Border Collie or my sailing 
skills along the Southern California coast. 

It has been more than 43 years since the 
Class of 1961 took its final lap around the 
Milestone. I'm pretty sure we all intended to 
stay in touch, and I'm also pretty sure we 
didn't (at least I certainly didn't). My wife 
Jan and I (your co-editor Tom Mercer) live 
in Dallas, having moved here temporarily 22 
years ago. We have two sons, Tom III (25) 
and Ben (19). Both went to St. Mark's 
School, a boys' day school here in Dallas. 

Alan "Albie" Booth '61 and his 
wife Claudia 

Tom is working in the publishing business in 
New York City, having graduated from 
Harvard in '01. Ben is Class of '07 at Brown. 
My business partner and I have a small in- 
vestment banking firm, and we have the very 
good fortune to be partners of Bob Bass 
'67. Since both Uncle Tom and Kittie are 
now gone, our family does not get to GDA 
as frequently as we once did; but we do pass 
through every now and again to catch up 
with our old friend, Mike Moonves, and for 
a little sentimental journey. The campus gets 
better looking all the time (and, come to 
think of it, so does Moon). There are a few 
new buildings where older buildings used to 
be, but it has been heartening to discover 
that the old buildings (including Uncle 
Tom's Cabin a/k/a Noyes Library) have 
been preserved and merely moved to new 
locations. There are a certain thrift and a 
reverence for the past about this preserva- 
tion, which are very New England and 
which I find very appealing. Although I 
made only a brief appearance, I had the dis- 
tinction of being the only member of our 
class to attend our 40th reunion in 2001. 
Fortunately, Jim Deveney '60 was there as 
well; so we reminisced a bit about those by- 
gone Byfield days. Since I'm becoming 
more nostalgic in my old age, it is my fond 
hope that Tim and I can stimulate more class

communication with the goal of staging a 
successful 45th reunion in 2006. 

Keep those emails and letters coming to 
your editorial team. Tom has been an inci- 
sive editor for Tim - always right on, with 
the red pen. We all recall those gentlemanly 
corrections from his distinguished dad, deliv- 
ered with such grace and style... the fruit 
doesn't fall far from the tree!

It is that time of year again. The fall col- 
ors must be turning in NE. Hopefully the 
hurricane season will run out of steam in 
Florida soon. Perhaps the coming season will 
scare up some new news from the likes of 
Cy Hoover in Tulsa, get an end of the sea- 
son finale assessment from Eddie Kleven on 
the Red Sox and a cleanup report from 
Burke Leahey and Ham Agnew in Florida. 
I am presently "on the road," driving my old- 
er daughter from Princeton to California as 
she transitions from graduate school to "the 
next step." 

A recent email from Stan Healy sug- 
gests that he is in a similar place in his life 
process. Stan writes, "I left my employer, Dog 
Watch, this past July. It was a very enjoyable 
satisfying two-and-a-half years of taking the 
company to a much improved profit and 
cash position despite a less than robust eco- 
nomic environment, but since September 
2003 the situation had deteriorated for me as 
the founder/ owner decided he wanted to 
become involved in running the company 
on a day-to-day basis. Two cooks in the 
kitchen makes for a very dysfunctional or- 
ganization! Since July I have taken a 'profes- 
sional pause' to think about 'what's next'. No 
interest in retiring. Will keep you posted. 
New email address is 
and cell phone number- which is my new 
'business' number- is 978.621.0744." 

A recent conversation with Frank 
Bond updated me on his various travels 
around the world. Frank is continuing his 
house building project outside of Santa Fe. 
No doubt that he still finds himself astride a 
horse, chasing his falcons and staying in- 

volved in related organizations. 

Tarbs logs in on a regular basis. His lat- 
est is, "I'm here on Long Island having a 
two-week vacation for the first time in sev- 
en or eight years and it's great. Finally relax- 
ing. All's well here. I guess, it's all relative 
now. Had a quick, non-consequential hernia 
operation on July 7 -played golf a week lat- 
er. New 'patch procedure' amazing. Current, 
ferocious case of poison ivy has sent me to 
the doctor's three times, though. Amazing. 
Loving watching the Olympics- Lithuania 
and the US band of unconvicted felon play- 
ground players are up next. Go, Lithuania!! 
Thinking of going into the city Tuesday to 
see the RNC and protestors at work. As a 
Republican, I am very frustrated that our 
party has been hijacked by the Texas zealots. 
Read the 9/11 Report - it's an easy read and 
is very interesting!" 

Tizzie, widow of Peter Entwistle, 
logged in not too long ago with the follow- 
ing note. "So sorry for the late reply - we 
have only just checked the email today as my 
daughter is home. Thank you for your note 

- so nice of you for thinking of us. Please do 
get in contact if you are ever in this direc- 
tion. I know that Peter would have liked 
you to see the farm. The Entwistle email is Rebecca 
(our daughter) is due to have a baby in three 
weeks' time which is very exciting and I'm 
very much looking forward to being a 
Granny. Our son Tom is running the farm 
very well and we have just sheared 600 sheep 
and now it is time for haymaking. We had 
nearly 1000 lambs this year - Peter would 
have been very impressed! Hope that you 
and your family are well - Peter did enjoy 
the reunion and always loved America. Love, 
Tizzie and family." 

Gar writes: "Since Ham went to the 
trouble of emailing a bunch of us about this 
new message board, it only seems fitting to 
post a message. Can't think of much news - 

- no marriages, births, or Nobel prizes. Can't 
help noticing the photo to the left of the 
screen (on the class site). After two years of 
lightning strikes, the chapel and the lady in 
profile are unscathed. Here's a metaphor that 
needs a subject!" 

I reported a few months back that Bill 
McPhee suffered a heart attack. He reported 
that he had been in good physical shape and 
has weathered the storm well. He is contin- 
uing regular check ups. More news next 
time around.

We are still missing a few email address-

are as follows: Ted Moore and Mark Johnson - I am hoping to get 
updates to my email from Slater Smith, 
Pete Flaherty, Cyrus Hoover, Darrell

40th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

It's not too early to remind ourselves of 
our 40th Reunion looming next June 10- 
12, 2005. Why not plan to attend and make 
it a special occasion for one another and 
those significant others brave enough to 
tackle the trip? Always heartfelt and memo- 
rable occasions, these quinquennial get to- 

Lovely to hear fiom Dr. Al Chase who 
kindly e-mailed these "tidbits to share with 
our classmates." He expounds, "My execu- 
tive search practice continues to grow in 
some exciting and surprising ways. My spe- 
cialty is placing CEOs and other C-level ex- 
ecutives who are Renaissance Men and 
Women in companies that still value that 
kind of broadly educated leader. Many of the 
executives I end up placing turn out to be 
alumni of some of the schools I wrestled 
against back in the day, and many of them 
turn out to be graduates of West Point or 
Annapolis, with Harvard MBAs they earned 

after completing their military training. 
Speaking of schools I used to wrestle 
against... Through a convoluted set of cir- 
cumstances, I have established an interesting 
correspondence with the author, John 
Irving, Philips Exeter Academy '60, and 
Captain of Exeter's wrestling team. I had 
written to John a few months ago, making 
him aware of some of the parallels I was 
aware of in our lives. I mentioned that one of 
his successors, as Captain of the PEA 
wrestling team, was Irvin Foster, the 138- 
pounder who stood between me and an un- 
defeated dual meet season in '65. John Irving 
replied with a three-page handwritten letter 
telling me 'the rest of the story' John Irving 
spent the 1965 season as a special assistant to 
Coach Ted Seabrook at PEA, and his assign- 
ment was to work with Irv Foster to get him 
ready for the New England Prep School 
Tournament. John Irving taught Irv Foster 
the arm drag takedown that was the differ- 
ence in our match, which Irv won 3-1. John 
Irving took the liberty of contacting Irv 
Foster, and now, almost 40 years later, Irv and 
I had a conversation on the phone this week 
recounting our match and the vicissitudes of 
life in the intervening 39 years!" Amazing 
story, Al, and a treat for us all in it's re-telling! 

Also chiming in is Eric Shepherd, who 
suggested, on the front of those little cards, 
"Sit down before you read this!" On the re-

Dudley Glover undertook his second 
long-distance hike to focus attention on di- 
abetes. He left September 20, on the fourth 
anniversary of his own cardiac bypass surgery 
made necessary by diabetes, on a 500-mile 
trek across Spain. He planned to arrive in 
Santiago on November 14, World Diabetes 
Day, after following an ancient trail that has 
been traveled by pilgrims, athletes, and recre- 
ational hikers for more than 1,000 years. 
Dudley hoped to demonstrate that "if one 
middle-aged diabetic can walk 500 miles 
carrying his insulin and medication, follow a 
proper diet, and still derive joy fiom life, that

[others] can walk around the block." Way to 
go, Dudley. Check out Dudley's trek on 

This past year, my life has been 
decidedly brightened by a pair of cameo 
visits to Charles and Carol Dunton's cozy 
and charming home on Nantucket. What a 
special time we had in reconnecting after all 
these years (see photo as evidence!!). They 
certainly are consummate hosts and gave me 
the royal tour of the island in both the on- 
and off-seasons. Anxious to meet others of 
you after such a remarkable stretch of time, 
they are planning to make our 40th — so why 
not entertain that same notion yourself? 

During this same visit East, I had a 
chance to stay with Chester Parasco in his 
Jamaica Plain home, replete with dinner 
plate dahlias in his manicured backyard gar- 
den, to celebrate his birthday and all things 
Greek as the Athens Olympics commenced. 
Great fun! As I hope many of you did, we 
enjoyed Mark Starr's reporting of the 
Games in his Newsweek bylines. In an earli- 
er e-mail exchange, Mark confessed to feel- 
ing flattered by being mentioned twice in 
the last Class Notes. He also remarked at- 
tending prior Reunions that helped him 
"come to grips with my GDA experience" 
in that they helped him discover that "folks I 
presumed were completely comfortable in 
school, if not the misfit I felt I was, were 
struggling there too." [Ed. Note: This has 
been a common revelation to many of us re- 
turning to Byfield after a long absence.] As 
for his immediate plans at the time of his 
writing, "I am off to Athens, my seventh 
Olympics and probably the one I am least 
looking forward to. When I switched to this 
sports beat from news, I thought, after some 
hairy combat assignments overseas during 
my younger, brasher days, I was finally out of 
harm's way. But when I was scouting Athens 
last month, the vibes there were truly nerv- 
ous-making. A lot of publications are offer- 
ing their Olympic reporters prep courses and 
equipment akin to what they provided for 
those who went off to Iraq. I had an 
Olympic job lined up for my 17-year-old 
daughter, but she and my wife will both be 
staying home. Hope to make it for our 40th. 
In the meantime, I see Henry Horenstein 
regularly and take enough abuse from him 
that GDA will always stay fresh in my mind. 
You mentioned Henry's latest book, Honky 
Tonk; it is absolutely sensational, a spectacu- 

lar portrayal of a bygone era in country mu- 

Many thanks, Mark. So relieved that the 
Games went safely and well. So pleased to 
think you and Karen might attend the 
Reunion. We must get Henry's buns back to 
Byfield as well; perhaps a retrospective of his 
art? But we need YOU, the reader, to show 
up as well. Let's start the line-up for next 
Spring, Guys: Byfield or bust!

Since Harper still has such a young 
child, he might want to curl up with the 
November issue of Developmental 
Psychology. It contains an article by 
University of Texas Professor Ted Dix that 
analyzes the motives and emotions that lead 
parents to act in support of their children's 
interests and the relationship of depressive 
symptoms to these motivational and emo- 
tional processes. 

If your reading interests run more to- 
ward astronomy, Stanley Greenberg strong- 
ly recommends an article in Sky and 
Telescope magazine, which debunks a lot of 
"facts" about the Battle of Marathon. Stanley 
has put together a Web site for his law firm

second-grader Noah play Pee- Wee football.

John Ogden gave Dave Marsh one of 
his "$8 sports jackets" so that he and son 
Andrew could have dinner with John and 
his wife Dorothy in a dining room at 
William & Mary last summer. In 1967, 
would Dave have been able to get past Geno 
with this get-up?

If you need anything at the Ipswich 
Bottle Shop, try to get it between Monday 
and Thursday Russ Bolles has enough good 
staff that he feels he can spend most of the 
other days alongside Lake Winnipesauke. He 
has just sold his place in Wolfeboro and 
bought a spot in Meredith. 

Roger Block has sold his house on 
Plum Island and moved to downtown 
Newburyport. His summer included a three- 
week sailing trip Downeast, where he spent 
time with another old salt, Win Burt. 

Roger's fellow Fitchburger, Phil 
Congdon, has concluded that the only good 
things about getting older are senior dis- 
counts and improved performance in trivia 
games (say what?). Phil says, "When I was 21, 
they would card me at a bar to make sure I 
wasn't lying. Now at the rec center, when I 
tell them I'm a senior, they believe me." 

Don Congdon (no relation to Phil) 
says his Camaro continues to hum along the 
highways and byways of the Granite State. 
Don's boyhood pal, Rich Brayton, is a pret- 
ty loyal Republican but said he could not 
bring himself to vote for George Bush. 
Summing up his life, Rich wrote: "I take 
more naps and more pain pills, but every- 
thing else is pretty much the same."

Mick Doolittle has produced a teacher. 
His oldest daughter, Erin, is in a first grade 
classroom in Frederick, MD. The two 
younger daughters are in college. Mick says 
he's aging "not so gracefully." 

Speaking of Marylanders, Andrew 
Nichols is now a managing director of 
Atlantic Trust Private Wealth Management 
and an associate partner of its parent, UK- 
based Amvescap, PLC. 

Bart and Paul Hemmerich now own a 
small place south of Glacier National Park in 
Montana and may retire there. Daughter 
Amanda was out West last summer fighting 
wildfires. Most of Paul's architectural work 
these days involves banks in New Hampshire 
and Massachusetts. 

Thinking about getting married? Ring 
up Rem Clark, who is building up a busi- 
ness shooting videos of weddings. He saw 
Jeff Forte at the Cask and Flagon in August 
during Jeff's annual pilgrimage to Fenway 
Park. Rem said Jeff was looking very young 
and, as a retiree with a nice boat, planned to 
"follow the sun for the foreseeable future." 

Sid Bird is now assistant superintendent 
of community corrections in Strafford 
County, N.H., where a new jail was opened 
after an overnight fundraiser. Paul 
Hemmerich was there for a tour, but was 
then released. 

Doug Curtis was in England earlier 
this year to see daughter Lindsay, a GDA 
grad, receive her Master's degree. She now 
works over there for a private asset manage- 
ment firm. Daughter Virginia is a senior at 
Manhattan CoDege. 

Scott Cameron was reportedly seen 
surfing in Mexico. Rem says that Scott is 
talking about moving from Colorado to 
British Columbia. 

While Floridians were fleeing from

Jacksonville, as he crossed the St. Johns

On he drove. When Dick got home, he 
found only minor damage.

Jim Rudolph reports that he and five 
lawyers from his firm, Rudolph Friedmann 
LLP, were recently named Massachusetts 
Super Lawyers by Boston Magazine. The 
firm, which was founded in 2002 and has of- 
fices in Boston and Marblehead, now has 22 
lawyers. Jim specializes in business, real es- 
tate and construction law. He is enjoying his 
seventh year as a GDA Trustee and Board 
Secretary. One son, Billy, is a senior at 
Babson College. Another son, Bobby, is a 
GDA senior this year and is a dorm proctor 
in Phillips. Jim's daughter, Katie, is in the 
fifth grade. 

From Dave Mitchell: "Good to hear 
from you and thanks for the trip down 
memory lane - particularly Coach Coop - I 
still have nightmares! Summer has been fair- 
ly busy with satisfying clients, trying to find 
new clients and shopping for licensing agen- 
cies. The first is going okay, the second is like 
a glacier - it moves but it's hard to see it - 
and the third, surprisingly, is making progress 
(at least as of this writing - but the fat lady 
hasn't sung yet). Family is all good and the 
sixth grandchild was born in July. It's a won- 
derful thing, but six is about enough. That's 
about it - hope this finds everyone in '68 do- 
ing well." 

It was great to hear from Jay Shay. He 
writes: "Hi Dan, hope this E-mail finds you 
well. I got a big kick from seeing all the pic- 
tures of the reunion and regret that we did- 
n't find the time to make it out there. Thanks 
to whoever is responsible for keeping me in 
the loop. What's going on around here? We 
still have kids in school so yesterday was a big 
day in my house with the first day of the 
new school year. Molly is starting third grade 
and Kyla is a senior in high school.

Ross Raymond writes that he has tak- 
en the leap back into entrepreneurial ranks 
once again. Ross found the itch to start his 
own business again was too strong so he 
scratched it. His new company is called 
eSubs Solutions, providing electronic phar- 
maceutical submissions. His example to his 
two boys, Chris at 15 with the learner's per- 
mit and Adam at 12 with a 12-year-old's 
opinions, is that it is never too late to change. 
Ross is still not sure what to tell Sue. To my 
knowledge, Ross is the first classmate to un- 
equivocally commit to being at our 40th. A 
mere three-and-a-half years! 

Harry Kangis and Julia continue to 
enjoy "semi-retirement." They have remod- 
eled their kitchen, are planning to tour 
Patagonia in November and have twin 
grandchildren due in December. 

Rob Lord is keeping a close eye on 
Bernie, Rick Schiess and John Sowles. 
Rob reports that all are well. I hope to hear 
from those three for the next newsletter. 

Our summer has been busy. Patrick, my 
grandson, has continued to amaze and de- 
light all of us. We went to the beach at Kitty 
Hawk, NC, for our vacation. I do miss the 
ocean. My business continues to be exciting 
and challenging, working with and in the 
long-term care industry. We are all getting 
closer. I hope that all of you are doing well.

I had a chance to catch up with my old- 
est friend (classmates since fourth grade), 
Peter Dorsey, at our reunion. I am the god- 
father of his nine-year-old daughter, Eliza, 
whom I hadn't seen for far too long. Peter's 
son, George, will be looking at Governor 
Dummer this fall as he is soon to graduate 
from our old school, Shore Country Day 
School. Peter and George skied Tuckerman 
Ravine this May, and he and Eliza climbed 
Mt. Washington this summer. Peter is the 

country squire of the Essex County real es- 
tate brokerage world. 

Doug Bradshaw was responsible for 
bringing Rick French back to the reunion 
after many years' absence. Rick is an attorney 
in Ohio. Doug was taking some pictures at 
the reunion as he is the official class photog- 
rapher. In fact, I have hired Doug as the pho- 
tographer at my daughter's wedding next 
June. If he forgets to take the lens cap off, I'll 
know where to reach him! 

Shel Sacks writes that he is still living 
in the Syracuse area and practicing dentistry. 
He said that they had over 200 inches of 
snow up there last winter. Shel was in Maine 
this summer taking his daughter to camp, 
then in Boston for a few days, and back again 
after a 1 000-mile car trip. Then he drove his 
oldest daughter, Samantha, to Washington 
University, and back, for another 2000-mile 
roundtrip. His youngest, Dylan, is entering 
eighth grade and plays football, basketball, 
and baseball. A chip off the old block. He 
says he is planning a trip to St. Maarten this 
Christmas with his family. (Ed. note: If he 
drives from Syracuse, that would be a 
22,000-mile roundtrip!) 

Jon Williams reports: "I was sorry to 
miss the reunion this June. I have been busy 
with my construction company, helping my 
wife (Mary) with the art gallery in Boulder, 
and an occasional real estate deal." 

Having a strong summer, I am now 
looking to fall and filling the slots we now 
see on our schedule, although today we have 
rain and (gasp!) snow in the foothills. I am 
taking a week in Connecticut in October for 
fall color as well as a long weekend sailing in 
San Diego where my stepdaughter works for 
Coors. I did manage a fair amount of water- 
skiing this Summer, and look forward to ski- 
ing this winter. We will stay on the water un- 
til it freezes, between CU, Air Force and 
Bronco football games. 

I have heard from no Govies recently, 
and am disturbed by the number of "D" s on 
our class roster. I guess we were a dangerous 
living group! 

Seeing Val Wilkie at the reunion was 
like turning back the clock. As far as I'm 
concerned, he is still THE Headmaster.

get together. I, Pam Pandapas, have been 
staying busy with new-house projects. One 
just doesn't know how large three-quarters 
of an acre is until one tries to keep it up dur- 
ing the summer months! But I have been 
having fun putting in flower beds, planting 
fall bulbs and the like. Rob gets to do the 

Dirk Lyons writes that he is still living 
in the Lincoln/Woodstock area of New

(6) and William (4), two dogs, and a bunny. 
Dirk is keeping busy with his plumbing and 

heating company, including a lot of radiant 
heat installations. He and his family are look- 
ing forward to a good ski season with lots of 
powder. A message to Fergie: "Drop me a 
line sometime!" Dirk sends his best to all and 
looks forward to our reunion. 

Pam Blanchard Post says that she had 
a good excuse for not responding right away, 
and it really was a good one. She and her 
family were getting pounded by Hurricane 
Frances! While this was Pam's first hurricane, 
the experience is not one she wants to relive. 
Deafening noise of wind howling. Since we 
didn't read about devastation in Hobe 
Sound, we can assume that Pam was one of 
the lucky ones. We wish you and your com- 
munity a speedy clean-up, Pam, and look 
forward to seeing you in June. 

Scott Draper is enjoying life trading 
equity derivatives at Susquehanna. He and 
his wife Susan have a four-year-old boy, 
Christopher, and a six-year-old girl, Alexis. 
Scott spends his free time fishing and scuba 
diving. He also plans to be at the reunion. 

Mike Sapuppo, his wife and eight- 
year-old daughter Sophia spent a week in 
Maui last June. Other than that, they stayed 
close to home. Mike says he's looking for- 
ward to getting back into the affordable 
housing development business... a very wor- 
thy endeavor. While he's not committing to 
the reunion, he does hope to be there. 

Jack Swenson says that since his last 
class note there isn't much more to add. But 
he does want to know if Mike Harding ac- 
tually leaps off of mountain ledges on his skis 
and mountain bike or if he just interviews 
those who do!!! Well, Mike??? Jack wants to 
hear more, so hopefully both Jack and Mike 
will be at the reunion in June and they can 
compare notes then. 

Stephanie Eames Ferrar's note in- 
cludes a wealth of information. She tells us 
that Paula Sekora McNutt is living in 
Melbourne Beach, Florida. I hope she made 
it through the storms. She and her husband 
Bill have two kids. John Bashaw's parents live 
in Safford, Arizona. I can only assume that 
John is somewhere close by. Steph visited

work, and various women's groups, she is 
also trying to plan a trip to Europe. She and 
Craig will be celebrating 25 years of mar-

By the by, Stephanie has been trying to find

soon celebrating 20 years in service. When 
he's not working or being husband and fa- 
ther, Derek enjoys golf. Recently he played 
with Spencer Purinton, Charlie Albert, 
and Greg Pope. And Barb Hallis Pierce 
lives close by and is counted among Derek's 
and Staci's closest friends. So, If these folks 
are so close by, why have I not heard any 
news from them??? At least they seem to be 
planning to be at the reunion. I'll give the 
appropriate admonishments then! 

Well, that is all I have from the class of 
1975. It is always fun to hear what everyone 
is doing in their life so keep up the corre- 
spondence. See ya'll in June!

Well, it sure is nice to be back in New 
England There's nothing quite like bik- 
ing along the shore or picking apples. An 
added benefit, reading The Eagle-Tribune 
newspaper, meant reading about our own 
Perrin Long! 

Perry is an assistant professor and chair- 
man of the culinary arts department at 
Southern New Hampshire University in 
Manchester, NH. In a recent article about 
peaches (a great crop this year), Perry was in- 
terviewed. Way to go!! 

Vicki Papaiouanou Murphy reports 
that there is nothing too new. She "still has 
three daughters." Caitlin is 20 and a junior 
in college, Krista is 17 and a senior in high 
school, and Riley, who is 11, is a middle 
school pre-teen. She "met with Joe 
Pietrafesa, Tracie Fornaro, and David 
Phippen on 7/13 at the Hilltop in Saugus. 
We missed Carrie's Eastward Ho by one 
week. We laughed too much to swallow and 
had the best mini-reunion. We can't believe 
there are ten kids between us. Anyone can 
join us next time. Spending the summer 
near Alton Bay — come and visit!" 

Chip White emails: "Wow, I can't be- 
lieve that I'm already looking at schools for 
my daughter Julie to attend in 2005! We 
went on an informal tour of GDA back in 
June. I can't believe how much it has 
changed since I was there. As we were leav- 
ing, I asked Julie what she thought of the 
school. She said, 'There was nothing about it 
that I didn't like. I want to go to Governor 
Dummer!' Of course, I think that would be 

great too. 

I heard from Ted Babcock, who pro- 
duces TV movies — as he says, some good, 
some not so good. He is doing two movies 
and a mini-series for CBS right now as well 
as two movies for ABC and one for Lifetime. 
He says it keeps him out of trouble being a 
working stiff. '"Cause we all remember how 
much trouble I can be." His only "note of 
merit" is that he gets to work with Rack Lee 
on some of his projects. "Rick's a great guy 
and working with him keeps Ted in touch 
with GDA." 

Phil Jackson writes the following: 
"Where do I start? My wife Victoria and I 
still live in Salem, MA (yes, it does get a lit- 
tle scary here at times) with our four kids 
(ages 15, 14, 12, and 9). They are getting me 
back for all the ... Never mind. We have a 
small business, Atlantic Lab Equipment LLC, 
located at The Enterprise Center on the 
campus of Salem State. We buy and sell re- 
conditioned laboratory instrumentation. It 
is a lot of fun. I have been crewing for a 
friend on his J24 on Thursday nights in 
Beverly. And I had a brief trip by myself to 
Budapest and Istanbul this summer, but oth- 
erwise things have been uneventful. It 
would be great to hear from folks. The only 
folks I have seen or spoken to recently are 
Brad and Sarah (Cavanagh). Brad now 
has his captain's license and apparently oper- 
ates a commuter boat between Boston and 
the South Shore. I visited with Sarah and 
her Mom in Plymouth last weekend. They 
seem to be doing well. We played golf in 
their backyard. No injuries to report. It was 
my first time playing since beating Perrin 
Long by one stroke 25 years ago at The 
Country Club in Brookline. I am sure he 
had forgotten that." 

Allison McElroy Quinttus wrote that 
she has been busy with her son's club soccer, 
her daughter's travel, and starting a new busi- 
ness. In the midst of all this, they are prepar- 
ing for her daughter to be a freshman at 
GDA in September." They are all very ex- 
cited about Sarah's going to GDA this year. 

Mark "Voodie" Vorreuter writes that 
he starts "work for Cornell University in 
September. I got in lots of sailing this sum- 
mer between the rain squalls." He saw 
Jonesy (Huw) and his family while they 
were visiting his family in Central NY. 

Voodie's son is a senior at NYU and already 
thinking grad school. 

WOW - can Voodie really have a son 
who is a senior in college??? 

Kate Wise Tewksbury and her family 
moved into a nice new house this spring. It 
has lots of room for the kids and all of their 
friends. Best part is that it is in the same 
neighborhood as their old house! They took 
a cruise right out of Baltimore to the 
Bahamas this summer and had lots of fun. 

I've heard from Tracie Acker man 
Fornaro that her son Alex is now a sopho- 
more at Newton North. They are planning 
to get in a lot of skiing this 'winter. 

Michelle Marean is still in Evanston, 
Illinois, with her husband and two children. 
She would love to move back to New 
England some day.

Hello All, 

By the time this comes out in print, the 
leaves will be gone and old father winter will 
be breathing down our necks. Happy days 
are coming for you skiers! 

It is my hope you all had a wonderful 
summer, and that many of you were able to 
have fun traveling, having big cookouts, go- 
ing to the beach or camping and enjoying 
your children. I had a great summer and will 
discuss that later on, but first your news. 

Greg Rose announces: "We're hitched! 
Melissa and I did it March 27 and honey- 
mooned in Tahiti! What a great time. Can't 
wait to see the whole gang again in 2008!" 

I heard from Phil Pescosolido! He 
writes: "This summer - Aikido & M.M.A 
training; farming citrus; backpacking the 
Sierras; and skiing in South America. Live in 
Exeter and South Lake Tahoe, California. 
Skied Montana with Goodhart last 

spring, (Scared him too.... James is 

getting kind of old.") 

That was a hell of a summer there, Phil! 
Doesn't sound like you've been spending too

Scott Visits the Scots 

Last August I took a 10-day trip in 
Scotland. I traveled by myself, had only one 
reservation for the first three nights, and then 
pointed my nose in the direction of the wind. 
Spontaneous the whole way. What a fabulous 
trip! I met so many interesting and fun people! 
I landed in Inverness, and then drove two-and- 
a-half hours southwest to the Isle of Skye. Skye 
is situated on west coast of the Scottish 
Highlands. Although I had a double flat tire 
when I was only a half hour on the Isle of Skye, 
that turned out to be a very funny adventure 
and worked out famously. 

The B&B where I stayed for the first three 
nights is owned by Rosemary and Donald 
MacLeod. During my time there, I found out 
that their son Allister was a surfing enthusiast. 
Through their son I was able to get hooked up 
with his buddy, Derek MacLeod, on the Isle of 
Lewis, which is about an hour-and-a-quarter by 
ferry, north west of Skye (Part of the outer 

As luck would have it, Derek owned the 
only surf shop on the island, so I rented a board 

from him. Derek and I met at the Pub across 
from his shop. When he arrived, seven young 
men were with him, all surfers. Four from 
Cornwall England, two from Wales, and one 
Australian. All were interesting, genuine and fun 
young guys. Jason Duffy, the Aussi, was the surf- 
ing World Champion and it was a total blast 
watching him surf. In short, he was truly amaz- 

I was smiling to myself A LOT, because I 
was the senior man of the group at 45 years old, 
and these guys were all in their mid-20s. All 
Fantastic surfers, strong and fearless! They were 
at a loss when this Yank paddled out in the cold 
waters of Scotland, without a wet suit on. They 
thought the water was freezing, but actually it 
was pretty warm. I was glad to have provided 
some entertainment. It broke the ice sort of 

It was a great first day. The sun was bright, 
seals were bobbing their heads out of the water, 
checking us out, and the waves were forming 

The surfing was the best I have ever had in 

my life. The waves were four to five feet over 
my head on the first day, and slightly smaller on 
the second. One of the fellow surfers named 
Luke, hired a professional photographer to take 
some surfing pictures for his web site. Luke is a 
surf board manufacturer in Cornwall England. 
The photographer took my picture, so I 
thought I would include it in this article. I will 
return to Lewis as I loved the island, the people, 
the beaches and the surf. A great destination- 
Check it out! 

I thought since many of you hadn't had 
the chance to write, I would share with you my 
unforgettable trip. To all those who contacted 
me when I changed my address, thank you for 
your calls and lovely notes. It was deeply appre-

Well, first and foremost, our 25th

from the past from all angles. Those who 
were there can attest to that. We had good

times and relived many stories, although 
some of the 25-year-old stories seemed to 
have evolved into more lore than absolute 
truth. But it was fun and challenging to 
stretch our older (and under the influence) 
minds to put the pieces back together. For 
many of us, the memories are still as vivid as 
ever. Sitting around the fire at Avery's on 
Friday night was a great kick off. Food, beer 
and laughs were the recipe for a night filled 
with seemingly unlimited memories of our 
years at GDA. Things that some of us hadn't 
thought about in 25 years. Some good and 
some not so good, but all very entertaining. 
I would try to rehash some of the more col-

night dinner was also quite a good time. Not 
so much the event itself, but rather the hap-

dancing like Vanilla Ice, a middle aged attor-

25th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

Greetings, classmates!!! Time to start 
thinking about our significant reunion in the 
spring. Hard to believe that it is 25 years 
since we jumped the wall! Save the date, 
June 10-12, and come join us on campus. If 
you have an email address, please send it to 
me at We will be 
setting up a Yahoo group to help keep all of 
us informed about the reunion. 

Lots of changes up here in New 
Hampshire. I was laid off from MIT over the 
winter, and am now driving a school bus up 
here. Different stress, but great kids on the 
bus. Been having some fun talking with 
some of you this summer about the reunion. 
We are forming the committee now to do 
the planning, and it has been great talking 
with Elizabeth Evans, John Wise, Carl 
Schwartz, Lia DeNey and Jim Gardner, 
and Mr. Moonves. 

Jonathan Welch is on his annual trek 

down the intra-coastal waterway to Florida

John Fain and his wife had some in- 
credible adventures this past year. "In May, 
we celebrated 13 years of marriage. We are 
blessed with our health and that of our 1 1 
canine 'children'. Mesquite is now 18 years 
old. In April, Laura and I traveled on a mis- 
sion trip to Antigua, Guatemala with Faith 
In Practice, 
Laura worked in the Operating Rooms as a 
translator She also organized tons of donated 
components. I worked with several adult 
amputees. I completed initial evaluations for 
many children of Guatemala. Many of them 
traveled long distances for surgery to ampu- 
tate limbs that are non-functional. We will 
return next year with the group. In the in- 
terim I have plans to return on my own a 
few times in the fall for quick weekend trips.

Hello, Class of '82: 

Well, most of us have already turned 40, 
the rest of you must be counting down the 
weeks. Karen Jantzen and I each had the 
same idea; big birthday = big bash. Hers 
was at the New England Aquarium in 
Boston. Classy event. See photo of Karen, 
Martha & Sloan. 

Mine was more of a slumber party: five 
girlfriends at a house on the Cape, no kids, 
no husbands and no cooking. Don't we look 
ravishing? This is just after our "The Body 
Shoppe at Home" makeovers. We may 
make it a yearly event (the slumber party that 
is, not the 40th birthday). 

News from other classmates: Sloan 
McCauley is back in Alaska! This time, on 
the military base on Kodiak - a small island. 
Sloan's oldest daughter, Madison, is in fifth 
grade. Graham is four and Payton is three. 
They are both in pre-school. Sloan reports 
that she is happy to return to Alaska, after liv- 
ing in D.C. for the terrorist attacks. "It's nice 
to be somewhere where the biggest event is 
the crab fest!"

It was a real Hawaiian style wedding. My 
wife is originally from Calle, Colombia, so 
my life has been enriched with her South 
American/ Spanish culture. We're both en- 
joying the honeymoon before we fill up the 
casa with a bunch of kids. Hasta Luego."

(Eight!!) "Hard to believe summer is wind- 
ing down already. I spent a lot of time on 
the family farm in the Shenandoah Valley of 
Virginia this year, where Rachel (4) and 
Nathan (21 mo.) were able to spend time 
with their cousins and I was able to hook up 
with all my siblings. Helen (M-S 
Mazarakis, '80) was there with her three 
(George, Anna and Andreas) before leaving 
for a month in Greece. Mary-Alexandra 
(M-S Keirstead, '78), her husband James, 
son Nick and daughter Cecilia; and Ann 
(M-S Vance, '75), husband Terry and 
daughter Lisa, son Mike were all around for 
the Fourth of July weekend. With the addi-

brothers and all of their brood, it was a

some puppies. Hope everyone is having a 
good summer.!" 

Chris Swenson says, "My family is do- 
ing great. We still live in Concord, MA. My 
daughter, Laura, will be eight in December 
and my son, Robbie, is five. Robbie just 
started kindergarten and Laura, second 
grade. Both are doing lots of sports activi- 
ties. Laura is turning out to be a real athlete 
(unlike her dad who was a real "radiator" 
athlete). She is a very good soccer player and 
skier, and is seriously getting into figure skat- 
ing. Robbie is playing soccer and I am 
coaching his team. He also does gymnastics 
and is a great swimmer. A lot of you met my 
wife Priscilla at the 20th. She does lots of 
volunteer stuff, church, museum etc. She is 
also great at keeping the kids in line!! I start-

this is printed we should have (hopefully)

It was lots of stress getting this thing off the

ter late than never: "On February 13, we 
were married in Portland, Maine. If this is 
the first you have heard of our engagement, 
you are not alone. We eloped!" The note in- 
side says "Hey, Nancy! I am sure that I missed 
the deadline, but you can just put this in for 
the next one. You can include something 
like 'Kim was married to James Li in 
February in a simple civil ceremony in 
Portland, Maine.'" Okay Kim, consider it

Hello, Class of '84! Well, we survived 
the 20th Reunion and I thoroughly enjoyed 
the classmates that were able to attend. A lot 
of folks made quite a trek from far away to 
help celebrate this milestone! Charlie 
Cashin and his wife Kathleen were in from 

Alaska. I believe they are looking to relocate 
to the East Coast (did I get that correct?) and 
they are both doing well in their careers in 
the USCG. Kathy (Lambert) Watt was 
there on Saturday with her three kids, 
Natalie (9), Charles (7) and Robert (4). 
There were so many kids; the new play- 
ground at GDA was well used that day. Mike 
Dimodica was there with his wife Laurie. 
He tried to explain to me the engineering 
work he is doing at Genzyme, but I cannot 
articulate (understand?) it well enough to 
put it into 10 words or less here! 

I briefly saw Paul Bartholomew on 
Saturday afternoon. He was doing well and 
enjoying the weekend. Hank Friedman 
traveled in from Taos. He just started his 10th 
year at Taos High and his second as head 
coach for the girls soccer team. It was great 
seeing Hank again! He sent along a note in 
August touting how great it was to see 
everyone and added, "Nothing in my life to 
date has prepared me for coaching girls!" 
Good Luck with that, Hank! I also had the 
pleasure of catching up with Mike Graf and 
meeting his wife Aileen. They seem to be 
doing well 'with their architect business and 
are still living locally in the Newburyport 
area. Mariel Hagan and husband Todd 
Weinman were down from Vermont with 
three-year-old Duncan. Mariel and I enjoyed 
commiserating on some of the challenges of 
being a 'working mom. 

Tom Dust came up from New Jersey 
where he works and is raising a family with 
wife Rosie. Unfortunately, his family wasn't 
able to make the trek, but the pictures were 
wonderful! Charlotte (Johnson) Amorello 
and husband Matt were also there. They were 
very much the political couple and worked 
the room like pros! I didn't get to spend 
much time with Charlotte but my husband 
Dan thoroughly enjoyed speaking with 
them. Betsy (Tuthill) Farrell and husband 
Tom were there for dinner on Saturday night 
with new baby and fourth child Anna in tow. 
She was adorable and although I tried to 
barter for her so I could have a girl of my 
own, Betsy wouldn't give her up. I don't 
blame her; she was so good! Jean Jasse was 
the classmate who surprised me the most — a 
beautiful blond Californian who is teaching 
and is the assistant principal at a Catholic 
high school. As much as that seemed out of

Kathleen and Lea Miner '96 in July 2004 in Homer, Alaska 

left field to me, she was completely and to- 
tally the entertaining, enjoyable Jean I re- 
member from the 80s, with just a lighter 
shade and less curls. 

I ran into Eric Marshall and his two 
kids as well — seven-year-old Lea and three- 
year-old Thomas. They were busy enjoying 
the pony rides. (The school put on a great 
weekend and thought of everything that any 
kid would love.) We didn't get much time 
before he dashed off to catch up with Bill 
King, his wife Danielle and their three- 
month-old daughter, Abigail. Stefan 
Marculewicz and his wife Anne were there 
with sons Charlie (4) and Ben (3). I was half 
surprised to learn that he and Burke Leavitt 
(who was unable to attend due to emer- 
gency surgery a few days early — appendix, or 
something) aren't still playing in a band to- 
gether. Apparently, though, Stephan's sister 
Alex '86, was in a band that made it really 
big in Prague. Burke's dad is still teaching 
there and updated us that Burke was disap- 
pointed to miss the reunion, but recovering 
nicely. Rochelle Smith and her family, hus- 
band Phillip Cannon, son Julian and daugh- 
ter Jada, made the trip from California. 
Rochelle is still enjoying her chiropractic ca- 
reer and was quite impressed with all the 
changes the campus had gone through since 
she had been there (I think she said it was 
graduation day!). 

I hear that Gerry Tallman was also at 
reunion, but I didn't get a chance to get the 
latest news on his life. Chris Valhouli was at 
reunion on Friday night and provided the 

update that he now has his license to prac- 
tice law in three states - NH, MA and CA - 
and is currently enjoying life in California. 
Brothers Nick '83 and Demitre '82 are also 
doing well. Kim (Grillo) Burgess was there 
both days and is still, not surprisingly, doing 
quite well in the law firm where she works 
in Concord, NH. Dede (Daley) Warren was 
also there with her family, husband Bruce, 
daughter Elizabeth (8) and son Nicholas (6). 
It was great catching up with Dede, whose 
husband Bruce claims he pursued her merci- 
lessly for years before she would commit! I 
believe they said they had settled up in 
Vermont now. Elizabeth (Kimball) 
Williams was there with husband Alan and 
her four boys, Owen, Graham, Laurence and 
Charlie. They are doing well and Liz has 
started taking some nursing school classes — I 
vaguely remember something about some 
time out of the house drove her to it, but 
maybe I just am assuming that! Maryellen 
(Letvinchuk) Karin informed me that 
Rhonda Maxey's daughter is now attending 
GDA! While Aimee (Walsh) Schade wasn't 
able to attend reunion, she did send a note 
that she is doing well. She and HA. still mar- 
vel at their four kids, "their endless energy 
and enthusiasm." She sent along a family pic- 
ture from a summer vacation in Maine - 
look for it in this issue! Aimee sends along a 
"happy autumn to all!" 

Brett Engel says, "I live in Portland, 
Oregon with my wife Theresa and son 
Geoffrey. Another child is expected any 
day and will have been born when 

you print this. I'm practicing law. Visit me 
at or brett@sta- 

Betsy Tuthill Farrell reports that the 
new baby Farrell has arrived! "Anna 
Elizabeth was born two weeks before her 
expected date of St. Patrick's Day on 
Wednesday, March 3 at 7:20 pm — a few 
hours shy of sharing the honor of a birthday 
with her Aunt Mary Gene. She does hold 
two records, our lightest — 6 pounds, 13 
ounces, and longest — 20 inches baby. Also 
holds the record for the longest labor. This 
fourth child will not be outdone!" 

As for my family and me, we are doing 
well. Dan and I just returned from a trip to 
Ireland. I was able to combine a few days of 
work with a week of vacation - traveling 
around the northern part of the island. It was 
absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to go 
back and see the southern parts! My boys are 
all doing quite well. They enjoyed the re- 
union and are all sporting new t-shirts and 
baseball hats in crimson with the GDA logo. 
Sean has already decided he wants to go 
there for high school, so we've got about 
four years to get our Ireland trip in before 
we can't afford anything anymore. Drew isn't 
sure about the school yet, but he saw some 
of the boys alumni lacrosse game and decid- 
ed he definitely wanted to try that. Ryan was 
just happy to be going to the elementary 
school this year with his brothers! We cer- 
tainly missed those of you who were unable 
to make it to reunion — but the 25th isn't too 
far away. It was great fun and those of us that 
were able to attend would love to see more 
of our great class of '84 classmates!

20th Class Reunion 

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

I only received a few class notes. 

Jessica Gould writes: "I am delighted 
to announce that I was married to Ron 
Dabrowski on February 28, 2004, in a 
small ceremony on the beach in Playa 
del Carmen, Mexico. My brother, 
David '84, his wife, Christina, and 
their two children, Apple and Rafa 
were in attendance. Ron and I live in 
Arlington, VA - very close to JeffTaft. Jeff 
was unable to attend the wedding. 
Something to do with the "no fly list"... 

David Kagan writes: "Many things 
have happened over the years, most recently 
and most exciting is my recent marriage on 
June 12, 2004 to Gatey R. Graves. We live in 
Charlestown, MA with our two dogs, Gus 
and Emily. The ceremony took place at 
Mead Chapel at Middlebury College in 
Middlebury, Vermont. Our best man was my 
brother Mark Kagan '83. His daughters, 
Alex and Caroline, were our flower girls and 
my sister Karen Kagan '87 was one of the 
bridesmaids. We honeymooned in Australia 
visiting Sydney, Noosa Beach and Hereon 
Island at the Great Barrier Reef." 

All is well in Chicago. In July, Laura (my 
daughter) and I had a great time in 
Colorado. We did an overnight horse pack 
trip, white water rafting, hiking and a little 
fishing. We also got a cute new black lab pup 
named Annabel. She has tons of energy and 
has been keeping us busy. 

I can't wait to see all of you and your 
families at the 20th Reunion! Please save 
the dates June 10-12, 2005. The reunion 
committee is hard at work and is hoping for 
a large turnout. Please really try and make it

Hey there. These notes are a bit thin- 
ner than past issues, but we hope everyone 
has had great summers. Feel free to email 
notes to Kristen or me, whenever the 
mood hits you, and we will hold them for 
the next Archon. We do have some news 
to report: 

Lisa Carrigg writes: "I now have two 
Mary Jane shops in Newburyport and will 
open up in another town at some point. 
Come visit me if you're looking for funky 
shoes and clothing! Back in July, my husband 
and I went to Tracy Bodges wedding in 
upstate New York (she's now Trae 
Napierala). It was great to spend time with 
Ross Shain, Jason Maloney, Bill Bronson 
and Jeff Feldman '8 8. We had also hoped to 
see Lisa Taplin but her sister got married the 
same day. Brief updates: Ross is married and 
has a beautiful baby girl named Oona. He 
and his family live in Brooklyn, NY. Jason 
also lives in New York but is constantly trav- 
eling, working as a cameraman; he recently 
returned from Darfur, Sudan. Bill Bronson 
lives in New York and is engaged to be mar- 
ried, any day now I think. And Trae also lives 
in Brooklyn and owns a successful cosmetics 
company. She was a beautiful bride and it 
was a great weekend. If anyone sees Ross, ask 
him about his run-in with the bear! 

Kim Macdonald Shiff had a baby boy 
May 2, 2004, Leo Grant Tupper Shiff 
('Grant'). He stopped by, while doing some 
whirlwind traveling with his parents in 
August. It was great to see them, although 
briefly, and meet Grant. Kim and her hus- 
band Andy live in Washington, DC. 

Amy Mack Forsthoffer writes: "As

Caught some GDA games over the winter in 
Andover and looking forward to more in the 
spring. Hope to get back on campus soon." 

Who would have thought that both 
class secretaries would actually live in 
Byfield? But, I think Kristen and I saw more 
of each other when I lived in Charlestown. 

Children have a way of doing that to you. 
My husband and I just became busier with 
Charlotte Eve Northup, born February 12, 
2004. She arrived early, which threw us for 
a bit of a loop, but also made for one of the 
longest maternity leaves in history, which 
lasted until Labor Day. It was an excellent 
way to spend the summer, and Charlotte is 
doing great. 

Hope to hear from you soon. 
Enjoy the fall!

Hi classmates! 

It seems that it is time again to say hel- 
lo and catch all of you up with what is hap- 
pening around our "circuit". I have to say 
that this time our notes are a bit thin. I am 
hopeful that you are all saving your info for 
our winter notes so that we can have a pick 
me up after the holidays. I am happy to re- 
port that we are all still reproducing. . . I am 
waiting to hear from Lisa Sweeney about 
her fifth. We have news from some wayward 
alums, and some alums living m cool places. 
Next reunion at Zab's house, in BERMU- 
DA!!!! I was surprised that he neglected to 
invite any of us to stop in on him, but I hear 
that flights are pretty reasonable this time of 
year. In the name of class unity???!!!??? 
Look for photos; we had a few cute ones 
sent along this month. 

We seem to be spreading out more and 
more each year. Erika (Sayewich) Buell 
has left New England. She writes: "Thanks 
for your letter to the class (and for continu- 
ing to do these notes!). I'm just sending 
along a brief update b/c we're still getting 
settled here. Sam, Madeleine, Anna and I 
have moved to Austin, Texas so that Sam can 
teach law school. I'll be returning to work in 
some form in the future but that's still unde- 
termined. The girls are doing well — 
Madeleine is in her second year of 
Montessori and Anna just had her first birth- 
day. We had a great summer with a month 
in Rhode Island and then Sam and I spent 

Charlotte, daughter of Dan '88 and 
Albma Morison 

two weeks without the kids in France. It was 
heavenly. Austin seems nice so far— not too 
big or too small— just HOT! Nothing like 
Texas in the middle of August. I'm sure we'll 
appreciate the weather in March!" 

Funny to hear from another GDA 
Texan, this one is singing her way through 
the state .. Jenny Reynolds writes: "I am a 
full-time musician living in Austin, TX, for 
almost a year now. I mostly play with a full 
band in Austin, and am playing duo and trio 
gigs pretty much all over the country, of 
course including New England. I was hap- 
py to see Jon Morrisseau and Reg 
Edmonds in Somerville, MA last June, and 
have also been in touch with Jill (Packard) 
Plumer, and Jodi (Packard) Holt '90. Not 
sure if I am a Texan yet, and at present have 
not been informed as to how one becomes a 
Texan. I'll bet it involves a pick-up truck 
though. I really enjoy reading about how 
everyone is doing, and about folks getting 
married and having babies. Can't believe 
how close our 20th Reunion is, and am 
quite sure I have more gray hair than I did 
while at GDA. People talk about dying their 
hair, but the best way to handle getting gray 
is to buy an electric guitar and play it loud." 
Check out I 
emailed Jenny that "real Texans" also wear 
cowboy boots with outsocks... a pretty 
smelly proposition if you ask me! I do have 
to caution my fellow classmates... if you 
have kids, whom Jenny forgot when she gave 
us some advice about gray hair, please give 
your kids earplugs before playing your guitar 
really loud. By the way, purple hair dye cov- 
ers up the gray too!

class notes 

Carrie Penner's '88 daughter Ashley Anne Penner, born on July 5, 2004. 

Now, I HAVE to print Meganne 
Fabrega's editorial with her notes because, as 
a good class secretary, I have to include the 
good with the bad. . . "Loved your last news- 
I think you had just a LITTLE too much 
coffee before you wrote that one! I guess 
you need it with three kids!" Now Meg, I 
had to go back and reread my old notes be- 
cause I had no earthly idea what you were 
talking about (bad memory is a side effect of 
multiple pregnancies unless, of course, it is to 
remember the lack of labor division with 
your spouse!) I was nuts, you were right, 
what can I say? Meganne continues, "News 
from here is all good. I start grad school in 
the fall to become the inevitable (for me, at 
least). ..a librarian! I'm enrolled at the 
University of Rhode Island but taking class- 
es all over New England. I'm also writing a 
book column for a weekly arts paper here in 
Portsmouth and doing some technical 
proofreading. Petica (Barry) Lubin brought 
her two boys up for a visit with Heidi 
(Danielson) Stevens and her kids and 
Maxine; it was quite a scene. Airin Brown 
got engaged and is still with her fiance in San 
Francisco, Heather Hinrichs is also still in 
San Francisco and just got a great new job 
which will be taking her to India for a few 
months. Hello to all out there. Take care." 
Now Meg, you will be one COOL librari- 
an. No shhhhhhh's from you! You will have 
to keep us up to date with -where you land 
after graduation. Sophie (my four-year-old) 
has a habit of pulling everything out of the 
stacks and "putting them back" too! 

Now, for some additions to our "book 
moving club"... Mary Beth (Childs) 
Stilwell writes: "Ever since Anne Cole 
asked my whereabouts in the Class Notes 
following last year's reunion, I have been 

meaning to write. I have been living back on 
the East coast for the past two years. I spent 
the previous six years living in the Pacific 
Northwest. I attended graduate school at 
the University of Oregon where I received 
my Master's in Architecture. Then I spent a 
couple of years living in other parts of 
Oregon, including Portland and Bend. My 
husband, Jody, and I moved to Lincoln, 
Vermont to be closer to family, especially 
since we were about to start a family of our 
own. We welcomed our son, Thomas Creed, 
into the world on April 27, 2004. This sum- 
mer has been a whirlwind enjoying this time 
watching his continuously change and grow. 
My parents still live in Newburyport so we 
get down there quite often. They are loving 
being grandparents. Currently, I am on a 
six-month hiatus from the architecture firm, 
Bast & Rood Architects, in Hinesburg, 
Vermont for whom I design. Once I do re- 
turn to work, I am fortunate to be able to 
work part time out of the house and be at 
home with our little man. It's wonderful to 
read that everyone else is doing well." 

Now Dave Adams has had a lot going 
on in his life and career. . . "Thanks for the 
letter with the postcard. I have switched ca- 
reers again and am really enjoying the fruits 
or that laborious task. I took some classes up 
at the University of Maine in Orono during 
the Spring Semester of 2003. The intention 
was to get some Civil Engineering classes 
since all I had was Mechanical courses. It 
was a b**** of a ride (two-and-a-half hours 
one way). The investment paid off. In 
January of this year I started working for a 
company called Vortechnics in Scarborough, 
Maine. We make hydrodynamic separators 
that remove sediments and pollutants from 
storm water runoff. Basically they are engi- 

neered or manufactured Best Management 
Practices (or BMP s) that the EPA and other 
governing bodies require to treat storm wa- 
ter before it is released into sewer systems or 
into bodies of water. It is a great company 
and I like the engineering involved. I am a 
Technical Design Engineer in one of the in- 
side sales teams that cover different parts of 
the country. My territory is the great lakes 
(including Ohio) down to Texas. So if you 
know anyone developing property that 
needs storm water treatment, have them give 
me a call. We have had a good summer here 
in Maine. Kind of rainy, but generally mild 
and we really did not have too much hot 
weather. We took one vacation up to Errol, 
NH to go whitewater canoeing with the 
kids. My wife Deb was able to take the sum- 
mer off to spend it at home with my daugh- 
ter Ellie (7) and son Michael (5). Ellie is 
starting second grade this week and Michael 
is entering kindergarten." 

Katie Clifford Nadeau is back to 
work. "All is well in our family. I've started 
back to work as a Therapeutic (horseback) 
Riding Instructor for children and adults 
with special needs. If anyone is interested in 
contributing time, energy or funds to the ef- 
fort, check out the national organization at for a center in your area. I'm 
working at UpReach TRC in Goffstown, 
NH and we're doing great things! Hope 
everyone is well!" 

Now that we have all accounted for our 
latest offspring, we will all have to visit an- 
other librarian. Meg, you should do a co-op 
with Zabs aka Christian Zabriski who 
writes: "I can't believe that you have been 
willing to be the class secretary for so long. 
THANK YOU!!! Vicky and I are doing 
great. I am working as a children's librarian 
for the Bermuda National Library. Yes, that 
means that we are living in Bermuda full 
time. Pretty idyllic, spend a lot of time snor- 
keling, getting scuba certified. Vicky volun- 
teers at the maritime museum and the 
Bermuda International Film Festival. I am 
helping to set up the research library in the 
Maritime Museum on the side. Hope every- 
one from the mighty '88 is doing great. Talk 
soon, Z." Now Zabs, I would like to chal- 
lenge you to keep up with my Sophie and 
her book moving. I will definitely certify 
you as a credible librarian if you can do so. I

am sure that there are others that will donate 
their time to be SURE that you are ade- 
quately trained. Now, about the scuba les- 
sons in the children's section of the li- 
brary? ... Is there something that we have all 
missed????? MY Ohio library is missing 
something. Cushy job, great location, fun 
life... See you soon!!!) 

I am glad to add this note from our 

Thomas Creed Stillwell, born April 27, 2004 to 
Mary Beth (Childs) Stillwell '88 

traveling alum. She is back in the US!! 
Carrie Walton Penner writes: "I have just 
moved back to the US from Japan, where we 
have been living for the last two years. It was 
a great experience for all of us, and I loved 
living abroad with our three kids; Kevin (6- 
1/2); Drew (4-1/2), and Rachel (3). Our re- 
turn coincided with the birth of our second 
daughter, Ashley Anne, on July 5. She 
weighed in at eight pounds, six ounces, and 
has quickly established that she is at the cen- 
ter of our household as well as our hearts! 
We are enjoying being back in the SF Bay 
Area, and hope to see more of GDA class- 
mates now that I am back." I am happy that 
you gave us a kid tally. I had forgotten about 
the addition of Rachel! Congratulations on 
your newest addition!" 

Now we have to give our LAST entry a 
bit of slack. After all, Andy Noel must have 
made a few deadlines in order to get our 
yearbook out. He has an update for a few 
alums... "The Noels (Kate, Andy, Lucy, 
Andrew, A.J., Tucker (dog)) are doing well in 

Wallingford, CT. Changes A.J. Noel 

(the third Noel to arrive) is a happy healthy 
child. Our family is quite, quite busy these 

days. It's fun! I have been promoted to 
Director of Financial Aid at Choate 
Rosemary Hall and I am enjoying my new 
post. I will not be coaching hockey, howev- 
er, and that will be a big change. Not sure if 
I know how to get through the winter with- 
out being on skates every day! Our own 
kids will make sure that I'm lacin' them up, 
for sure! It was great to get together with 
the Sullivans, the Moodys, the Lydons 
and the D'Orios over the summer. Four 
GDA grads in attendance, four spouses in 
attendance and 1 1 future Governors in 
attendance! Wow! We're certainly adding 
to our population. Hope everybody has 
a great year." Well, that may be IT!! 
Seeing Chris D'Orio is like a meteor 
sighting... once in every 100 years! Chris, 
don't think I haven't noticed that you 
don't send notes anymore. Can you get 
Dana to send your update? She is better 
than you at keeping in touch with your 
friends!! We may have to trade her for 
you in our class alum directory! 

That is my last prodding for the year. 
Thanks again for all of your well wishes. 
I have so much fun keeping in touch 
with all of you. I feel lucky to have this 
job. Please keep all of your info coming. 
I really can't wait to see you all again some- 
time. Who knows 'where I will be by our 
next notes. Maybe Zab's neighbor? Perhaps! 
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 
winter and holiday season. 

Your faithful secretary, Deana 
Giamette Boyages.

Meanwhile, just around the corner, 
Kathryn DiNanno was writing: "Big

I love being a mother; it really is all that it's

so great that you have each other nearby. 
And WOW! Nanno, Congratulations! 

News from Texas, resulting from a gos- 
sip threat, is Mr. Jon Bormell, filling us in on 
the past seven years. "Hope you are doing 
well. Just to make sure you don't start mak- 
ing up more stuff about the guys in our class, 
here's what I've been up to for the past few 
years. I graduated from the New England 
Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT in 
1997. In 2001, I got married to Melinda 
Glenn, and opened my own restaurant back 
in Fort Worth, Texas named Bonnell's, Fine 
Texas Cuisine (just two blocks from the 
school where Mr. Harlow taught). I'm the 
owner/ Executive Chef and I have been in- 
vited to cook a dinner at the James Beard 
House in New York City on August 31, 
2004. For those outside the food industry, 
it's kind of like being invited to play 
Carnegie Hall." Yea Jon, good stuff. He had 
sent information on tickets but, as this is 
printed after the event, we can all stay up- 
dated on Jon's future events at www.bonnell- 

Now, on to our other faithful reporters. 
Mr. Glenn Johnson says, "Not much new to

work, trapeze and gymnastics training, and

Trumble writes: "Gary and I are doing well. 
I have taken over admissions for the UK 
College of Social Work for the Bachelor's, 
Master's and Doctoral programs and am still 
working on my doctorate in Math." Brian 
Payne says, "Life is really good. Just got mar- 
ried two weeks ago and just came back from 
our honeymoon in Mexico. Just finished my 
seventh year running Ice Works 'Elite 
Hockey Training', a company that specializes 
in the development of hockey players. Have 
a dog named 'Governor', yes, I named him 

after GDA. Talk to you soon " Ahhh. 

Cute. See what kind of impact that little old 
school can have. 

Our other top reporter Mr. David 
"Smitty" Smith writes: " Hello Nikki, I 
hope you are well. I attended Jocelyn 
Malik's wedding to Tom Link on August 28 
in Pittsburgh, PA. It was a lot of fun. I saw 
Billy Batchelder (expecting a second child 
within a month) and Chad Harlow in Lake 
Tahoe, CA this past weekend. That was also 
a ton of fun. Take care and thank you for all 
you do." 

Thank you, Smitty. It's my pleasure. 
And yes, I am doing well. I, too, have had 
fun times with my GDA friends. I don't of- 
ten go on about myself here but I feel the 
following events require it. As most of you 
probably remember, I am a huge Prince fan. 

In July, Lori Weener invited me to the 
Prince concert in NYC as an early birthday 
present. It immediately brought back mem- 
ories of going with Kyrie Stevens, Josh 
Soloman, John Costello, Kelly Mello and 
Chad Harlow to the Prince concert at the 
Worcester Centrum in October '88 for my 
birthday. Do you all remember that fun?! 
Well, this summer became its own unique 
memory. With Robin Remick prompting 
me to go down front and try to dance with 
Prince, I ended up giving it a shot and . . . 
who knew? They let me. So I had the 
thrilling experience of dancing with my fa- 
vorite artist on stage at Madison Square 
Garden in front of 20,000 some-odd people 
and for five songs! For me, it was simply the 
best, and having Lori and Robin there made 
it even more special. 

But it will not be my only 15 minutes 
of fame. You can catch a glimpse of me in the 
remake of the Sinatra film, The Manchurian 
Candidate, next to Denzel Washington in the 
scene when the FBI is reviewing tapes of 
who entered the convention. Since January, 
I've been happy to work on three major 
films. I've clearly been bitten by some kind 
of bug. I'm not sure if it's curable yet. I'll 
keep you posted. 

Lastly, a reminder that our 15-year re- 
union is coming up June 10-12. Plan ahead 
and anyone interested in helping out, let me 
know. And any other classes planning on 
crashing the Byfield area that weekend, we'd 
like to see you also. As always, congratula-

Well, greetings from the East coast. 
After nearly three years under the Golden 
Gate, I am back East and in Boston. As I em- 
barked on my cross country drive, it was sad 
to leave SF behind and my West Coast fam- 
ily which was mostly made up of GDA folk. 
I was very sad to say goodbye to the 
Batchelders, Billy, Catherine and, of course, 
Will. I miss them as my neighbors and keep 
thinking I will run into Cat and Will at the 

coffee shop. She probably won't have time 
for coffee as the latest addition to the 
Batchelder family is due to arrive in 
October. Bence Oliver is also back in SF 
now working with Ebay and mastering all 
sorts of new sporting adventures including a 
triathlon, of all things. He really is a San 
Franciscan now! Unfortunately, I wasn't able 
to meet up with Pete Jacobs before heading 
East but he was busy getting married. 
Congratulations Pete! Pete and Megan were 
married on June 12 in the Marin headlands, 
where he said that they had an unbelievable 
day. Pete sounds great and said that he is "to- 
tally in love and feeling great, just weird to 
be someone's husband as I am still convinced 
that I am 19 years old. Stark reminder of my 
declining youth last week, though, as I woke 
up on my 32nd birthday with a sore back." 
Oh, how we all can relate to that sentiment. 
Being back in Boston after nearly 10 
years is somewhat surreal but I will say it is 

so nice to actually be able to catch up with 
people in person. Ironically, Matt Murphy 
has bought a place in the South End around 
the corner from me so, much like our days in 
NYC, we are neighbors again. At a little 
housewarming he hosted, I was able to run 
into Todd Bairstow and Stratton Newbert 
and his wife Eunice. Everyone is doing well 
and hopefully there will be more get togeth- 
ers in the future. I am happy to be back in 
town with my dear friend Karen Queen 
and even more thrilled to be a part of her 
upcoming nuptials in November in 

Toby Levine is still teaching yoga in 
Bangkok and will be returning to live in 
Boston by the end of the year. She was 
home in June for a visit and was able to catch 
up with Jen Jasse and Andy Mack and 
Leah Benander with their babies which 
was a lot of fun. Chuck Rodman is a new 
father. Chuck and his wife Laurie (married 
in 1 1 /02) just moved to Needham and have 
a new baby girl, Molly Charlotte, who was 
born on 8/20/04. Everyone is doing great 
and they are really enjoying being new par- 
ents. Chuck has also formed a new business 
litigation firm in Newton called Dunbar & 
Rodman LLP; they have been adding associ- 
ates and staff since the firm's creation in 
March of this year. 

Cathy Burgess also moved back to 
Boston last year from Florida and is looking 
to buy a condo in the area. She is still with 
Evergreen Investments covering the New 
England region. Cathy also has run into 
Mike Burke a couple of times and reports 
that he is also doing well. 

Lindsey Miller Boden married 
Michael Boden on June 26 in Manchester 
By the Sea. Mike Moonves was in atten- 
dance and, according to Lmdsey, "took the 
dance floor by storm with her father and 
friends." Lindsey and Michael now live in 
Newtown Square, PA, on the main line out- 
side of Philadelphia. Lindsey is working part 
time in admissions at the Baldwin School 
while also testing children and counseling 
families as an educational consultant. She is 
also busy with their new puppy, Rudy. 
Lindsey encourages anyone visiting her in 
the Philly area to look her up. 

Mia Kerns is still in Maryland chasing 
around her two kids and hopefully we will 
catch up next time she is in the Boston area. 
Megan Hight just moved back to the 
Boston area from Philly. She and her family

It happened this morning. After six 
years of playing grown-up and telling kids to 
be careful in the dining hall, I was the one 
responsible for setting the toaster on fire! As 
the smoke cloud cleared and I hung my head 
in shame, I remembered the countless 
burned cheese pita sandwiches and those lit- 
tle miniature bagels that always seemed to 
slip through the cracks and ruin somebody's 
morning. For a moment I was back there, in 
our dining hall, with my pants pegged and 

rolled, trying to pretend that it wasn't me 
who had caused the fire. This, of course, got 
me thinking about all of you! 

It has certainly been a busy fall for the 
class of 1 992! Brooke Whiting was married 
at the end of the summer in the Moseley 
chapel. Guests included Josh Lappin, Erin 
(Elwell) Rich, Christina (Morse) 
Williamson, Grace Jeanes, and Use 
Abusamra '93. Brooke and her husband 
Jon will honeymoon in Costa Rica this 
January — a nice break from the New 
England winter! Also looking ahead to this 
winter are Jon Kazanjian and his wife 
Claire, who are expecting a baby due in 

Also happily wed and enjoying life is 
Grace Jeanes, who was legally wed to her 
longtime partner Leah Basbanes this sum-

Grace is actively involved in the Merrimack

Devin Sullivan is also enjoying mar-

has heard from Sean Naughton and would 
love to get back in touch with Toby Harris 
and Matt Massinter as well. Where is 

Amy Daniels has been busy with her 
position as Marketing Director at the 
Prudential Center. Every time I talk to her 
she's in the middle of planning some big 
event, most recently appearances by Bill 
Clinton and various Red Sox players. 
How'd Amy get that gig? Candice Denby 
is enjoying graduate school in Oakland, 
California and I'll get to see her in a few 
weeks when I start traveling for school. I've 
also been in touch with Saundra Watson 
'93 who is as busy as ever — she's been 
coaching lacrosse and teaching. 

Laura Baptiste reports: Everything is 
great! I am happily divorced but I have a 
beautiful two-year-old daughter, Jade, and I 
am a kindergarten teacher at the Magnet 
School on Chicago's southside. Aside from 
being a mom and teacher, I give free and pri- 
vate piano lessons to underprivileged chil-

out here skiing or looking for an excuse to 
get away! It's good to hear from so many of 
you. Please keep the letters and emails com-

June 10, 11, 12 2005 

Hi, Class of 2000! I hope you are all well 
and are getting excited for our five-year re- 
union next summer, June 10-12th. It was 
great to hear from so many of you again. I 
am quite happy doing Endocrinology re- 
search at Children's Hospital, Boston. I re- 
cently bumped into Pete Aloisi and 
Meghan Barry at a bar here in Boston. Pete 
has just gotten a job with Bank of America,

Tom Hand graduated with a Bachelor 
of Science in Landscape Architecture this 
past May. After enjoying a short break for the 
summer, he began working as a designer 
with a landscape architecture firm in 
Wellesley and moved to Newton. Tom came 
down to my family's beach house this sum- 
mer and we were both lucky to be able to 
catch up with Elizabeth Turnbull down 
there. My sister Kelsey '05 hosted a cross- 
country gathering which was attended by 
Kelsey's teammate Caroline Turnbull '06, 
her mother, and Elizabeth. At that point, 
Elizabeth was just about to move back to her 
home state of West Virginia to work on the 
John Kerry Presidential campaign. Here is a 
little taste of Elizabeth's daily life at Kerry 
campaign headquarters that I took from a re- 
cent email from her. "My office is the most 
idiosyncratic space this side of 1935. It's an 
abandoned jewelry store; I pass the wall 
vault/safe to get to the back rooms. The cash 
register is still bolted to the counter and 
dingy glass jewelry cases fine all the walls. 
The place has a distinct Soviet charm. Old 
globe lights hang from the ceiling and the 
floor tiles are a patchwork of different grays, 
depending on whether they are old, really 
old, or pre-Columbian. There are bullet 
holes in the window glass. They say they're 
from before this was the Democratic 
Headquarters, but I can't be sure."

it's amazing, I stop myself every once in a

you are doing something REALLY 
DIFFERENT right now, things won't be the 
same, 'something's happening, something 
good.' Which is always a nice thing to hear

has gone wacko,' so maybe I'll just stop talk-

Hey, Class of 2001 ! Finally, for most of 
us, we have reached our senior year in col- 
lege and I am getting so nervous figuring out 
my life after graduation. I am having a great 
time in Providence busying myself with 
sorority events and my new found job as a

are so much more difficult, but I know the 
end is near! 

I ran into Megan Rothwell in

be an American than she had ever felt before! 
When she came back from DC, it was off to 
Nantucket for the month. Her grandparents 
have a house there, so she was living with her 
grandfather for the entire month. She wait- 
ressed at the Harbor Wok six nights a week, 
and during the days she had several babysit- 
ting jobs. There were two families that she 
mainly worked for. She had to bike eight 
miles each way to her babysitting job, which 
meant that she had lots of "exercise with a 
purpose." She didn't have one day off for 
one whole month, but it was worth it be- 
cause by September, she was able to put a 
decent amount of money in the bank. So 
now she is back in Williamstown doing the 
school thing. And, so far so good. Pre-season 
bball has started up and they're looking to be

pretty good this year. SO SHE'S PUMPED! 

Marc Borden is still at Hobart and still 
playing hockey He and Morgan Steir are 
getting an apartment in New York City next 
summer. He also sees Emily Block around 
campus quite a bit. 

Pat Monigle trained with the NC State 
Soccer team last spring. He is currently 
planning a benefit show for October, possi- 
bly featuring Clint Bierman and his band, 
The Grift. He will also be traveling to DC 
in October with the other Park Scholars for 
a four-day stint. Everyone should start sav- 
ing money now for the spring of 2006 (next 
year) for spring break 

because he will be studying at U-Hawaii 
for a semester. "Stay in touch!". 

Judah Thissell is currently enjoying art 
classes at Broome Community College. He 
has started up a lot of old friendships that he 
left back at home when he went to GDA. 
Life is good. He is playing and learning the 
guitar and looking forward to the holidays. 
He just had a good family reunion and he 
wants to travel around the states soon. 

Carl Noblitt is enjoying his sophomore 
year at Bates College. He is majoring in bio- 
chemistry and playing ice hockey. He also 
received a grant to study the impact of poi- 
sons on the environment. His results will be 

And I, Mike O'Neill, just finished my 
third summer as a Park Ranger at Bradley 
Palmer State Park. I am ready to return to 
the more sophisticated and idealistic envi- 
ronment at Connecticut College. I started 
off my year as a COOP leader where I took 
12 weary freshmen onto the Appalachian 
Trail over 20 miles and four mountains. 
Tremendous fun. I own a coffee shop in our 
performing arts center where I serve hot 
drinks, pastries, and the like. (For those who 
are in school down south, New England 
winters haven't changed much - maybe a 
touch colder.) But to ensure a steady flow of 
income, I am working as an Admissions Tour 
Guide and down in the sports information 
office as a writer and announcer! Good luck 
with the semester, and I look forward to 
writing all of you again next year. Until 
then, keep the letters coming!

Creating An Ideal Life 

Lindscy Hery '05 delivered this Chapel speech to the GDA community on Septetnber 22, 2004. 

Ever since I was old enough to realize what was going 
on in my life, I have thought that my mind worked harder 
than everyone else's. I was convinced that I thought way 
too much and that I questioned the simple things that were 
clear to all the other kids my age. Of course the more I 
thought about the fact that I think too much, the more 
time I spent pondering this mental disease that I was con- 
vinced I had. Once I came to the realization that there was 
definitely something wrong with me, I became obsessed 
with the intricate surgical measures I thought possible in 
order to put a cease to all of these constant thoughts. On 
many occasions I thought of asking my mother if there was 
some sort of procedure out there that would solve all of my 
problems, but luckily, I never got around to it. 

As I got older I realized this wasn't abnormal, and I was 
no freak or superhero, as I might have perceived. It was okay 
that I questioned the normal stuff and that I thought out- 
side of the box. If I had gotten that imaginary operation 
that I wanted, I would not have been able to stand in front 
of all of you today and give this speech. I never did find a 
solution to that problem; in fact, I continue to overanalyze 
everything. My mind is filled with memories, questions, 
stories, opinions, creativity and curiosity, and I wouldn't 
want it any other way. 

As my fellow senior classmates and I complete our fi- 
nal year at the Academy, we have a lot of things on our 
plate. One of the many things we are struggling with is 
building up the applications with the best grades and activ- 
ities possible. This in itself could drive someone insane, and 
as I go through this process, I admit I have my moments of 
frustration. Filling out the same questions on every applica- 
tion becomes more than tedious. The question that per- 
plexes me most is when they ask us our predicted occupa- 
tion. For some this may be easy; they may write lawyer, 
teacher, nurse, sanitary engineer, or what have you. But this 
is not an easy task for me. What I would like to write in this 
space is, "anything but sit in a cubicle." Now that may be a 
very large generalization, but I am willing to accept that. I 
say this because I refuse to work 9-5, and I refuse to hear 
the words, "Sounds like somebody has a case of the 
Mondays." Remember, this does not need to be decided 
right now. We have an entire fife ahead of us. 

When we started this process last year, I sat down and 

thought really hard about the years ahead of me. Not just 
college, but beyond that as well. Although it may sound 
scary and awful, but as far as we know it, this is the only 
shot we've got at living. One question that I asked myself 
and other people close to me is, why wouldn't you try 
something different? Why not be unique? If this is our only 
go at it, we might as well enjoy it. 

I began trying new things, recognizing my flaws and 
trying to fix them. I forgave people whom I promised I 
wouldn't, and I tried learning for knowledge and not just 
for tests. I stepped outside of my group of friends and made 
some more. I looked at people, situations, and life different- 
ly. I felt as though there had been this barrier in my mind 
that I needed to get over and I finally did. It felt refreshing, 
and without realizing it, this was the first time in a while 
that I really felt comfortable. I laughed harder, cried less, and 
appreciated everything a little bit more. 

I thought about what I would have to do in the next 
few years in order to live up to the ideal life that I wanted. 
There are a few things that I realized I could do without 
and many more I found that I could capitalize on. I believe 
that ambition and optimism will carry you farthest in life. 
If you focus on the positive things, you will find yourself to 
be happy more often and more pleasant to deal with. 
Whenever something is bothering you, think about 
whether it is really that important and if it is worth all of 
that angry energy. Also, learn how to relax. This is a tool 
that I think is vital when you are a student here. At times 
we all think we have way too much work to possibly finish 
in one weekend, or one night. Often times this is true, but 
I have learned that if you are relaxed while doing the work 
it goes by a lot faster and smoother. 

When you walk around today, say hello to everyone. I 
challenge you to smile the whole day through. Make a new 
friend, or sit somewhere different at lunch. Pay attention in 
classes; you might actually learn something. Disagree with 
someone, or argue a point. Tell those close to you that you 
appreciate them. Go to sleep a little bit earlier tonight, or 
maybe even a little bit later. 

Most importantly, find out what makes you happy and 
surround yourself with it. 

Thank you. Live well, laugh often and love much.

student at GDA? Pass it on.

Dear GDA Friends, 

The Annual Fund and the Campaign for Governor 
Dummer have been priorities for our charitable giving dol- 
lars. From my professional experience in the trust and estate 
world, however, I know the importance a good estate plan has 
in our ability to perpetuate our charitable gifts. 

Jan and I have named Governor Dummer Academy in our 
estate plan so that this lifetime relationship I have enjoyed 
with my old school can indeed have a lasting impact. We hope 
you will also consider remembering the Academy in your 
own financial plan to secure our school's historic 241 -year 
mission of educating future generations. 




Dear Alumni/ae, 

In 2002, the Academy created the 
Schoolhouse Society to honor those 
who establish planned gifts through 
estates, gift annuities, bequests and 
trusts for the school. 

Master Moody was the first of many 
headmasters to guide Academy stu- 
dents towards lives of fulfillment, 
achievement and commitment to 
high ideals. Through the generosity 
of the bequest from William 
Dummer, Master Moody was able to 
begin the tradition that is Governor 
Dnmmer AraHemv 

Today the future of the Academy 
depends on additional gifts from 
you, our graduates. Your gift to the 
Schoolhouse Society will help the 
Academy in its mission to help 
today's generation and the genera- 
tions of tomorrow achieve all that 
they are able. 

Please contact me to talk about your 
role in helping forge the future of 
Governor Dummer Academy.
